Have you ever wondered how plastics will be made once the oil supply dries up? Is it possible to produce functional materials and plastics from biological resources? Can novel, sustainable materials be produced based on the molecular structures available in nature? As the world is running out of fossil fuels, we need to develop sustainable materials, which may have completely new properties. The master’s in Biobased Materials will provide you with the knowledge and skills to deal with these challenges. It will prepare you for a career in research, development, production and application of biobased materials, allowing you to play a part in the transition towards a more sustainable future.
The Biobased Materials Research Group participates in the Aachen-Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials (AMIBM) and the Chemelot Institute for Science & Technology (InSciTe), they collaborate with various partners on a number of projects.
After two years of hard work, the first graduates received their well-deserved diplomas for the master’s programme Biobased Materials.
We are pleased to announce that leading energy and chemicals company Saudi Aramco, is supporting a research programme on the Sustainability of Biobased Materials in a circular economy, at the Aachen-Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials (AMIBM).
On the 12th of May, the Aachen-Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials (AMIBM) hosted the 2nd annual Applied Biobased materials Conference (ABC) in the inspiring surroundings of the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen.
