Accelerating the transition towards net-zero materials.

Materials Nexus cares passionately about the state of the world and its future. For them, this means reducing global CO2 emissions by enabling new green materials with reduced emissions and improved performance.

The materials and chemical industry need to change. The megatrends of climate and sustainability coupled with the shifts in commodity prices mean that the materials and chemical industry needs to move faster in terms of innovation to reduce costs, increase product performance and avert climate change.

Materials such as concrete, steel, and plastic contribute towards 50% of all CO2e emissions. The detrimental impact of polluting materials spans more than just the environment, research from MIT suggests that if pollution doesn’t reduce there will be a significant reduction in population this century.

 

 

By re-engineering these materials, we can reduce emissions – significantly reducing or completely mitigating these CO2 emissions. Materials Nexus is working across multiple industries to accelerate the transition toward net zero.

Tackling climate change through technology

Decarbonising the materials sector will lead to more circularity in the economy, and greater use of sustainable materials which will lead to less pollution and a better standard of living for all.
