A hub for innovative plastic technology in the Netherlands’ Drenthe region

A hub for innovative plastic technology in the Netherlands’ Drenthe region
Description

To boost the development of a sustainable plastics and bio-based economy in the Netherlands’ Drenthe region and surrounding areas, the Stenden Polymore Research & Education (Stenden PRE) project brought together academics, businesses and the public sector to create a specialised knowledge and business hub.

Results

The shift from using fossil fuels to sustainable resources can lead to new market opportunities for companies. Knowing this, the project created a knowledge hub on sustainable plastics called Stenden PRE. The hub supports plastic technology clusters that are committed to develop sustainable innovations for producing, using and recycling plastics. As a result of the project’s work, Drenthe has established itself as an international cradle for bio-based innovation and applications.
