“I am thrilled and honored to receive the DSM Bright Science Award. I appreciate DSM’s commitment to solving the world’s most pressing societal issues as many of these issues relate to sustainable materials science, and I am very grateful that our work in the area has been recognized in this way,” said Professor Hillmyer.
Dr. Marcus Remmers, Chief Technology Officer of DSM, commented: ‘’As a science-based company, with a purpose-led strategy, we believe it’s our responsibility to recognize and reward extraordinary scientists who dedicate their lives making our world a better place. One such extraordinary scientists is Professor Hillmyer, whose pioneering research in materials science is pivotal for the development of products and applications that help society transition towards a bio-based economy based on preserving natural resources and stimulating greater circularity. At DSM, we take this pretty seriously ourselves. Take DSM Engineering Plastics, which In 2019 announced that its entire business will offer a full alternative range of its existing portfolio based on bio- and/or recycled-based materials by 2030. Businesses involved in the materials industries wouldn’t be able to successfully make such a transition without the important work done by scientists like Professor Hillmyer’’.
