CEFIC | Restoring sustainable carbon cycles: the chemical industry as a solution provider

Your substances


The European chemical industry shares the EU’s climate-neutrality ambition and is investing in the technologies and solutions of tomorrow. But there is something we cannot change: the sector has an intrinsic need for carbon molecules.

 “Carbon is the atom of life, of our societies and economies”: this is the starting point for the European Commission’s Communication on Sustainable Carbon Cycles. From pharmaceuticals, to (bio-based) plastics, organic chemistry needs carbon molecules to shape the world we live in. To reconcile this essential need for carbon molecules and the need to curb CO2 emissions, it is key to have access to alternative and sustainable sources of carbon.
