Lux recently attended a luncheon hosted by the Chemical Marketing and Economics (CM&E) group of the American Chemical Society. The speaker from Deloitte emphasized the urgency of achieving sustainability and circular economy. While he highlighted the actions needed from regulators to build a better ecosystem, he also mentioned the promise of digital technologies, especially how artificial intelligence (materials informatics in this particular space) can facilitate the development of better functional materials (catalysts, for example) to achieve sustainability. Clients in the chemicals and materials sectors should always look at how these two megatrends can unfold new opportunities together.
