Boosting Regional Investment in Sustainable Chemicals

European Commission and the European Chemical Regions Network

Final Conference: The European Sustainable Chemicals Support Service

Scotland, through Scottish Enterprise, will take part in and present at this conference, sharing Scotland's experiences from the Model Demonstrator Regions project on sustainable chemicals investment.

The European Commission and the European Chemical Regions Network will organise the Final Conference of the European Sustainable Chemicals Support Service, organised by a consortium of Cefic, PNO and CIRCE.

The event will present the results of the European Sustainable Chemicals Support Service initiative funded by the EC, including the publicly accessible Self-Assessment Tool, aimed at supporting regions to make a first assessment of their investment readiness level regarding sustainable chemical production.

It will feature success stories from the six regions, selected by the European Commission as “model demonstrator regions” in Europe for a sustainable chemical industry: Andalusia (Spain), Groningen-Drenthe (The Netherlands), Kosice (Slovakia), Scotland (United Kingdom), South and Eastern Ireland, and Wallonia (Belgium).

Who should attend?

The conference is of importance for:

  • Regional and national authorities
  • Regional development and investment agencies
  • Business support organisations
  • Chemical industry representatives
  • Biomass and waste feedstock suppliers (farmers, forest industry, waste management companies, waste water treatment companies, etc.)
  • Financing organisations (banks, venture capital, business angels, etc.)

Why should you take part?

The conference provides the opportunity for an open discussion with high level public and private representatives and the six model demonstrator regions on how to:

  • Encourage investments in European sustainable chemicals production that will contribute to the development of the circular economy
  • Contribute to the industry policy objective of raising the GDP share of manufacturing in Europe
  • Valorize locally available resources and support rural development
  • Develop coherent policies, such as those related to circular and low carbon economy, and industrial symbiosis, as well as removing investment bottlenecks
  • Involve regions at EU level towards more competitive and sustainable chemical sectors.
