REDscape’s spatial study (supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL) into the future of biobased chemistry receives a favourable response from its panel of experts. Biobased landscapes have the potential to supply raw materials for the chemical industry replacing pertrochemical (oil) based products to develop a sustainble supply chain. These products are often byproducts of nature and agriculture and preclude food competition. The design research focused on the largely tillage based, clay landscapes of southwest Netherlands including the port areas of Ternezuen/ Vlissingen with their major chemical industries. A new phase of research is being currently prepared.
