Brightsite offers sustainability program to minister Wiebes (Economic Affairs and Climate policy)

Press Release

Brightsite is of national importance at the heart of the energy and raw materials transition of basic chemistry. Promising and special, because it is done together. Together with companies and knowledge institutions with the support of governments. Together through the ‘valley of death’, scaling up to climate neutral. Decisiveness is an essential condition here. Brightsite offered a sustainability program to minister Wiebes (Economic Affairs and Climate policy)

On 21 September 2020, Arnold Stokking, Managing director of Brightsite, presented this rational approach to sustainability to minister Wiebes from Economic Affairs and Climate policy. An inspiring conversation they have had, looking forward to proceed with national impact.

About Brightsite

Brightsite can make 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.

Brightsite is a public-private partnership between four partners. A collaboration based on an open character, which uses an expertise network to realize a transformation in the chemical industry. The Brightsite partners, Sitech Services, TNO, Maastricht University and Brightlands Chemelot Campus signed the cooperation agreement June 2019 and appointed Arnold Stokking as director. Under his leadership, Brightsite started working on the Chemelot site with six program lines.
