Jiffy recently joined the Green Chemistry Campus Community. Jiffy, internationally active in the horticultural sector, develops and produces innovative and sustainable substrates and cultivation systems. As a Netherlands-based organisation, this year Jiffy participated in the third edition of the BioVoice program that links questions from large companies to solutions from SMEs. At the Campus, Jiffy is looking for biobased materials as a raw material for potting soil and other substrate applications.
Proton Ventures received an innovation contract from BioVoice Innovation & Business Booster for the SABIC Hydrogen Challenge.
This innovation contract with a pilot assignment gives Proton the opportunity to conduct a feasibility study. It is being investigated whether it is technically and economically feasible to build a green ammonia plant with the aim of locally producing 8,500 tons of green ammonia per year at SABIC’s production location, Bergen op Zoom.
As from 4 November, the Green Chemistry Campus has a new director: Connie Paasse. Connie is an experienced manager from the international chemical industry. In recent years, the Green Chemistry Campus has grown into an incubator that offers a comprehensive solution for innovative biobased entrepreneurs operating at the cutting edge of agro and chemistry. Connie will give direction to the strategy to further expand and accelerate this success.
With the help of a financial contribution from the Province of Noord-Brabant, the municipality of Bergen op Zoom, in cooperation with the Green Chemistry Campus, has € 1,187,500 available for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the European Union that are active in the biobased economy.
