#futureSAX innovation forum in Delitzsch

On Thursday, 21 March 2024, industry leaders, scientists and technology transfer stakeholders discussed #trend technologies and innovations in the field of #chemistry as a building block of the future at the #futureSAX innovation forum in Delitzsch, Saxony

In the World Café Panel Life Science, Dr Susanne Ebitsch, Managing Director of the Research and Transfer Centre for Bioactive Matter, and Dr Oliver Uecke, COO Lipotype GmbH, discussed with participants the services that are still missing for a functioning circular economy:

o There is a lack of (sustainably financed) exchanges or databases for recyclable residual materials.

o In order to increase recycling rates in the plastics and textiles sector(Sächsisches Textilforschungsinstitut e.V. (STFI)), suitable sorting processes and new technologies are needed that enable the recycling of composite materials, 3D printing waste(Better Basics Laborbedarf GmbH) and new plastics, for example.

Delitzsch will also be the location of the large-scale research centre Center for the Transformation of Chemistry (CTC). In his keynote speech at the futureSAX Innovation Forum, Peter Seeberger, Head of the CTC, presented the vision of a future-oriented, cycle-based utilisation of raw materials and their recycling at the end of the product cycle.

USP of the region: There is space for innovative companies and living space, paired with creative science.

Thank you for the inspiring talks! Now let’s get to work.
