“You should not fight the petrochemical industry but rather stimulate it in order to reduce its CO2 emissions even further.” Hans Keuken, today CEO of the Process Design Center, started the company with a student colleague as two-man start up directly after graduation. Studying first theoretical physics and then mining engineering, he gradually shifted to the processing side and metallurgy. In the Process Design Center they use now Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology for the optimization of process development.

In this lunch lecture Hans Keuken will share stories out of over 30 years business experiences in the bio-based industry and his ideas on how to stimulate the transition.

This lecture is organised by CODON - Studyassociation Biotechnology  Wageningen University & Research.
