Sustainability in Focus

The Chemical Industry Fund (FCI) is sponsoring a chemistry camp at XLAB that will focus on natural and synthetic building blocks for making plastics.

By focusing on topics ranging from raw material extraction, polymerization and processing to recycling or disposal, the camp planned for the fall vacations of 2021 will shed light on important aspects of the entire value chain of the plastics industry. The camp is divided into an introduction, three main topics and an insight into current research on plastics production. Cooperation partners from the Faculty of Chemistry at the University of Göttingen will be involved. All three main topics enable the students to get to know methods used in modern chemistry.
