Brightsite transforming industry
towards a sustainable future

Brightsite makes a major contribution to the transition of the chemical industry to renewable energy and feedstock sources, with the aim of making this sector climate neutral and bringing solutions for other sectors. We boost the development and commercial application of technologies that enable the chemical industry to achieve its sustainability, safety and human capital objectives, in line with the climate challenge and energy transition. A great assignment where knowledge and skills of all parties come together, committed to securing and promoting employment in a sustainable manner.

Green chemical industry

To strongly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, ambitious and costly energy and feedstock transitions are required. The chemical industry still makes extensive use of fossil raw materials and energy carriers. A drastic transformation is required to establish a sustainable future. Not only a transition to renewable energy- and raw material sources, but a complete greening of business processes.

Green chemical industry is sustainable, innovative and competitive. Brightsite gives a boost to the development and commercial application of innovative technologies that are required to achieve the climate objectives.

A unique initiative

Knowledge center Brightsite is a partnership between Sitech, TNO, Maastricht University and Brightlands Chemelot Campus, and focuses on making the chemical industry more sustainable at the Chemelot site and other locations. The climate goals pose hugely significant challenges for the chemical industry, but they also provide opportunities. Sound transition management will result in economic growth and will draw in talent and business. As the development and application of new technology involves much more than just the technical aspects, the work also includes safety aspects, social acceptance, legal and economic feasibility, job opportunities and education.

Our goals closely fit the ambitions of the Dutch government and Province of Limburg. Holland Chemistry embraces this initiative and fully supports the (inter)national ambition. Brightsite is partner of Chemelot Circular Hub, to realize the transition to the first fully circular chemical site in Europe in a perfect helix.
