The brightest stars of Renewable Materials will meet again in Siegburg/Cologne (Germany), 11-13 June 2024. The unique concept of showcasing all renewable materials at one event hits the nail on the head: bio-based, CO2– based and recycled are the only alternatives to fossil-based chemicals and materials

At the heart of the Renewable Materials Conference (RMC) is the future of the chemicals and materials industry. What could a strong, innovative and sustainable industry look like that no longer derives its carbon from fossil sources? What options are already available from bio-based, CO2-based and recycled feedstock? And what trends are emerging for the refineries of the future?
