Sustainable Chemistry and Circular Economy: Innovative Technology Saves Energy and CO2

Berlin, Germany-based start-up company New Dawn Silicones —formerly known under the name We Are Galaktika — has developed a resource-efficient chemical recycling technology that allows silicones to be reused without loss of quality. With this idea in the field of sustainable chemistry, the start-up addresses one of the most pressing environmental problems. The use of innovative technology makes it possible to use end-of-life silicones as the starting material for new, high-quality silicones, thus contributing to a circular economy that saves energy and resources while also having a more positive climate footprint compared to the use of new raw material. The founders are supported by the International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre (ISC3).
