ARC Chemical Building Blocks Consortium
The Advanced Research Center Chemical Building Blocks Consortium (ARC CBBC) is a unique collaboration between several multinational chemical companies and top academic researchers of the Netherlands. Within ARC CBBC, public and private partners together carry out multidisciplinary research in the fields of chemistry, physics, materials science and engineering.
New molecules and materials
We want to develop the chemical building blocks of the future: molecules and advanced materials, including catalytic structures, with new or much improved properties. They will lead to a plethora of novel functionalities based on sustainable materials and energy resources. Within ARC CBBC, chemists and engineers are working together on energy carriers, coatings and functional materials.
Make our society more sustainable
With each of our research projects we aim to advance scientific knowledge and to provide insights into important technological challenges. Academia and leading industries have committed to together work on some of the most urgent questions the world faces: making our chemical production processes more sustainable.
