Release of video on sustainability of chemicals through the lens of planetary boundaries

We had a great time shooting a video with the teams of Prof. Javier Pérez-Ramírez and Prof. Gonzalo Guillén-Gosálbez from ETH Zurich on their NCCR Catalysis study on sustainability assessments of chemicals production, and are excited to see it released!

The teams investigated whether the production of the 492 most relevant chemicals is sustainable with respect to transgression of planetary boundaries. In this NCCR Catalysis study, they found that 99.4% of these chemicals exceed at least one such boundary, which makes them unsustainable in the long term. Learn more about their findings in the video and the publication!
