With her background in polymer science, Pauline supports the nova-institute conducting ISO Life Cycle Assessments for renewable chemicals and materials. Moreover, technology scouting, market research and feedstock analysis, with a focus on bio-based and CO2-based chemistry, round her activities at nova.
In this context, she currently takes part in several national and international research projects (e.g., CHAMPION, WaterProof, and TANIPU) as well as in consulting for the industry. Pauline has given national and international presentations, and is regularly involved in workshops on her focus topics. She has authored and co-authored several nova publications:
- Carbon dioxide (CO₂) as chemical feedstock for polymers – technologies, polymers, developers and producers
- BioSinn – Products for which biodegradation makes sense
- Bio-based Building Blocks and Polymers – Global Capacities, Production and Trends 2022-2027
- Carbon Dioxide (CO₂) as Feedstock for Chemicals, Advanced Fuels, Polymers, Proteins and Minerals – Technologies and Market, Status and Outlook, Company profiles
