The R&D Hub is a joint R&D project by seven global chemical companies that are members of the LCET initiative (the MCG Group, BASF, Covestro, Dow, SABIC, Solvay, and LyondellBasell) and TNO. This is the world's first attempt in the chemical industry to achieve net-zero and realize a circular future through global collaboration and joint development across companies. Under the collaboration agreement, the R&D Hub aims to develop new technologies for waste processing with a lower CO2 footprint and greater levels of plastic waste recycling. The first R&D project is scheduled to begin in late 2023.
