The company’s global network of application technology and technical service supports close interaction with customers to establish new, sustainable solutions. Since Europe is an important market, with high appreciation of sustainable solutions, a broad R&D base and the home of many of Evonik’s research and development activities, Evonik has a strong interest in advancing the bio-based economy in Europe.

With business activities in the fields of consumer goods, animal nutrition and healthcare, many of Evonik’s products interact with biological systems or are of bio-based nature. Evonik operates in markets and value chains which will need new solutions to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals, set forth in 2015. The bio-based economy will be a center stage for the evolvement of these innovations.
