  • Sustainability assessment based on life cycle assessment (LCA) and techno-economic analysis (TEA), applied to design and evaluatie material cycles in early development stages, in absence of pilot scale data. This expertise is also applied to new solvent systems, (bio)degradation of plastics, enzymatic reactions, and local abatement of poor air quality. Technological expertise is the extraction, upgrading and chemical recycling of organic (polymeric) materials and their (biobased) constituents.
