Hermann Fischer / Horst G. Appelhagen

Chemical Turn

On the intelligent use of natural raw materials

“Wouldn’t it be great if it didn’t take a major industrial accident to raise political awareness of the Chemical Turn now needed, but if a little book could do the trick instead?” Tanja Busse, WD Radio 5
We know now that the Energy Turn can and will happen. This book demonstrates the equal importance of a turn to renewables and natural raw materials in the chemical industry.
Converting to renewables is much more than tweaking our economies. It calls for a radical change in the raw materials we use to produce everyday goods. The chemical industry, which still relies heavily (up to 90%) on petroleum, has to reinvent itself. This challenge has already triggered a raft of innovations. Pioneering companies, reading the signs of the times, are moving away from petrochemicals in the manufacture of cars, building materials, textiles and cosmetics, and looking to plants, algae and microorganisms. The benefits to health and wellbeing are becoming clearer.
Hermann Fischer is an entrepreneur and pioneer of ‘green’ chemistry. He and Horst Appelhagen engage in an informative and stimulating dialogue as they outline these latest developments. But they also guide us back to the magic of the materials themselves, the very essence of chemistry, and demonstrate impressively that plants are so much more than raw materials. With their sophisticated synthesis, they provide the standard to govern any production process.
