“We mean business”


Catalisti, the spearhead cluster that facilitates innovation in Flanders’ chemical and plastics sector, is a public-private partnership between industry, knowledge institutions and government. In open innovation projects, Catalisti cooperates with its partners on specific topics in four programmes: renewable chemicals, process intensification, advanced sustainable products, and the valorisation of sidestreams, including CO2.

Within its innovation programmes, and through the Moonshot initiative, Catalisti aims to reduce the CO2 emissions of the chemical industry and other energy-intensive sectors. Sustainable technologies such as CCU can support this ambition. To further optimize these technologies and bring them to a higher TRL, Catalisti provides its expertise and network to the North-CCU-Hub. This way, Flanders can take on a leading role in Carbon Capture & Utilization.
