  1. Chemical IndustryValue Chain Partnership for growth Pierre Joris Chief Scientific Innovation Officer SOLVAY S.A. Cefic – R&I Programme Council Member

  2. The European Chemical Industry transformation • Shift from technology support on request to proactive demonstration of societal value • Mindset shift to intensifying pre-competitive cooperation and open innovation along value chain • Visible leadership of Chemical Industry in Public-Private Innovation Partnerships addressing societal challenges. • Broaden engagement of companies (big + SME ’s) in Public-Private Innovation Partnerships • Change way we do things (i.e. more with less, renewables, smart materials)

  3. Why Innovation ? • Key for competitiveness of EU Chemical Industry • is loosing ground on production compared to other regions • Critical to disconnect growth from footprint • .. and make our renewed growth sustainable • Essential to feed downstream industry innovation stream • … by bringing enabling material solutions But also • Instrumental in gaining positive political recognition and support • As innovation driver in and from Europe • Needed to keep attracting younger talents as “high tech” sector

  4. Societal challenges & Innovation Quality of Life in EU Societal Challenges Requirements Public Policy strategic intent • cooperation along the value chain • Too big for one party: Public Private Innovation Partnering • From research to solutions • Needs EU critical mass • Leverage the vicinity of value chain partners • Employment • Climate change • Health and ageing • Use of natural resources • Energy security • Clean transport Powerful drivers of change in economy and society Major global market opportunities

  5. The Valley of Death A major challenge European Competitiveness S P E E D

  6. SusChem - Value chain & Partnering Platform Horizon 2020 EIPs Water Raw Materials Smart Cities National programmes Regional initiatives SPIRE PPP 6

  7. Vision for the Innovation Landscape Future PPP’s Water EIP REP SPIRE Sustainable Process Industry Industrial Competitiveness

  8. Chemical IndustryPriority areas • Cross Sectorial Public Private Partnership – proposal for Horizon 2020 • Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency • More than 450 thousand enterprises. • Employ over 6.8 million employees, • Generating more than 1,600 billion € turnover • The founding basis of the European Economy (20%) • Struggling with declining global competitiveness • Addressing : • Advanced process technology and products • Alternative (i.e renewables, waste) feedstock sources • Recycling along the value chain • Ambitions : (from current levels) • Up to 30 % fossil energy intensity • Up to 20 % reduction in non renewable, primary raw material intensity •  Overarching target : up to 40 % efficiency improvement in CO2 equiv. footprints EU – Innovation Union Industry engagement SPIRE

  9. Chemical IndustryPriority areas Water Efficient Europe • Public-Private water management • Water efficiency : Urban, Industry and Consumer use . • Water solutions : boost EU Industry competitiveness • Integrated Water solutions : Symbiosis • Waste water treatment EU – Innovation Union Industry engagement • Raw Materials for a Modern Society • Ensure reduced EU dependency on global Imports for raw materials for EU growth needs. • Improved accessibility through new Technology and Innovations in Extraction Technologies and Geologic research • Improved recycling • Research and Innovations in substitution Smart cities • Individual mobility in cities • Refurnishing of housing stock • Insulation for energy and noise

  10. A few examples Recycling Rare Earths from the urban mine • Rare earths are key for high technology markets • Supply is almost totally controlled by China • Solvay Rhodia owns a unique expertise in the purification of rare earths which is key for their recovery and recycling First targets Low-energy light bulbs, magnets, rechargeable NiMH batteries

  11. Storage through electrolysis H2 Clean Energy 1MW (Lillo) High yield reuse in Industrial Fuel Cell Cementplant Washed Filtration Cake KCl Chemicalplant Cement Kiln Dust Enabling recycling of Kilin Dust and Extracting Potassium Innovative bio-basedmonomers for Polyamides Disconnecting performance polymers from fossil route A few examples
