ISC3 presents innovative solutions of fourteen start-ups at ACHEMA

DECHEMA Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie e.V.

    From textile dyes derived from microorganisms, to image processing and learning systems for PET preforms, to the conversion of organic waste into biodegradable products – the innovative ideas presented by the International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre (ISC3) at this year's ACHEMA in Frankfurt from 10 to 14 June are as diverse as Sustainable Chemistry itself. In total, fourteen start-ups will be on hand to present their solutions for a sustainable world.

    Every day, five young companies will be presenting solutions for a more sustainable world at the booth (D2, Hall 6.0), some of which have already been awarded Start-up of the Month in the frame of the ISC3 “Global Start-up Service” support programme. ISC3 is also organising the Start-up Slam together with three partner organisations - Forum Startup Chemie, 5-HT (Germany) and Brightlands (Netherlands) - on 12 June from 11.15 a.m.: Fourteen start-ups from India, Egypt, Austria, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Germany will present their ideas on the EY Green Innovation Stage (Hall 6.0).

    "Sustainable chemistry is a key driver for the process industry of the future. With the presentation of the start-ups supported by the ISC3 Global Start-up Service at ACHEMA, we want to bring together the right players to not only lead innovations that take ecological and social aspects into account to economic success, but also to pave the way to a sustainable future," states Dr Alexis Bazzanella, Director ISC3 Innovation Hub. The list of start-ups that have been supported since 2018 shows the enormous creativity and innovative power of founders around the world. “The innovative chemical sector - chemical industry and entrepreneurs - can make a major contribution to showing alternative paths to a “green transformation” through responsible, green and sustainable innovations. To this end, we founded the ISC3 Global Start-up Service with more than 200 start-ups worldwide”, says Dr Thomas Wanner, Managing Director of ISC3.

    The ISC3 community booth with the start-ups is located in the "Research and Innovation" area in Hall 6.0. The focus is on the research areas and academic programmes of university institutes and research facilities from Germany and abroad as well as start-ups that offer fossil-free, bio-based and circular solutions for the process industry. Here, pioneers, experts and solution providers from industry, politics and science meet with decision-makers and users.

    "ISC3 and Friends Slam" at the ACHEMA EY Green Innovation Stage

    Together with three partner organisations – Forum Startup Chemie and 5-HT (Germany) and Brightlands (Netherlands) - ISC3 is organising the "ISC3 and Friends Slam" at ACHEMA: Fourteen start-ups, including those from the ISC3 Global Start-up Service, will present their solutions for a sustainable future at the EY Green Innovation Stage (Hall 6.0) on 12 June from 11.15 am.

    Vienna Textile Lab (Austria) is a biotech/fashiontech company focusing on the research, development and production of textile dyes from microorganisms to create a commercially viable alternative to conventional synthetic dyes.

    Plastale (Egypt) sees opportunity in plastic & crop wastes to make sheets for interior design & furniture applications. The start-up team put plastic circularity into action through collaborating with corporates and designers while empowering local communities to be regenerative.

    Bioweg (Germany) replaces fossil-based chemicals with innovative bio-alternatives developed through fermentation, material science, and green chemistry. We create 100% biodegradable functional ingredients, surpassing synthetics without compromising on quality.

    Banyan Nation (India) is a pioneer in circular economy for plastics, and a top player in India’s FMCG bottle-to-bottle recycling industry. Banyan produces human contact safe, traceable rPE and rPP resins at consistent technical, color and odor performance.

    Mavisol B.V. (Netherlands) developed the on-line quality monitoring solution by a machine vision and AI for PET package production. It facilitates wider usage of rPET without quality compromises in transition to the circular economy and in line with Industry 4.0.

    Energy Robotics GmbH (Germany) offers inspections with AI-supported robots and drones. This makes it possible, for example, to consistently and reliably monitor critical plant components in chemical plants and capture high-quality data that is difficult for humans to access.

    Coac GmbH (Germany) sees itself as a driving force and enabler for data-driven innovations. Its products include intelligent tools for product safety and regulatory compliance as well as smart sensors for laboratories.
    Nextmol (Spain) offers cloud-based molecular modelling and artificial intelligence for computational chemistry.

    Blueplasma Power (Netherlands/Spain) has a patented technology for converting hard-to-recycle waste (mixed plastics, textiles, foams, paper, ...), which today ends up in landfills or incinerators, into CO2-free hydrogen and circular carbonates.

    ETB Technologies (Netherlands) developed a process to produce bio-butadiene from bio-ethanol with state-of-the-art conversion and selectivity. 1,3-butadiene is a building block for plastics, rubber and other chemicals that is conventionally produced mainly from fossil raw materials.

    FRE Technologies (Netherlands) is a clean-tech company with a technology that enables the recycling of low-grade plastic waste, previously considered non-recyclable, into valuable chemicals that can be used in the manufacture of new plastic products.

    AllocNow (Germany) offers a scalable solution for the automation of life cycle assessments in accordance with the relevant ISO standards and based on the GHG protocol.

    UniteLabs (Switzerland) has developed an integration platform for laboratories that makes it possible to connect laboratory hardware and software, build applications, control instruments and automate data flow.

    Exomatter (Germany) connects and assimilates data from a global network of science-based materials research sources into a powerful search engine. In this way, the start-up enables researchers from all industries and at all levels of technical expertise to find the right materials for their application.

    About ISC3
    The International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre promotes Sustainable Chemistry for a sustainable world. ISC3 supports the chemical industry and chemical-related sectors in their transformation process through sustainable, innovative approaches from Sustainable Chemistry. The goal is a circular economy that implements the multiple aspects of sustainability over the entire life cycle of products and a rethinking of the behaviour of all stakeholders. To advance the dialogue between different sectors and actors worldwide, including Europe and other regions as well as emerging and developing countries, ISC3 follows a multi-stakeholder approach with the networking of policymakers, public and private sectors, education, science and society. It contributes to international chemicals policy, develops professional and academic training programs, advises companies, and promotes start-ups and research. Founded in 2017 by the Federal Environment Agency and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection, the centre is supported by the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) and by the Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (DECHEMA e.V.) as ISC3 Innovation Hub and Leuphana University Lüneburg as ISC3 Research & Education Hub.
