Meet our team
(under construction)

A decade ago Gabby van Meer saw the potential within “elementary retraction”. A technique that turns complex waste streams which are currently burned or dumped into useful and eco-friendly products. However, creating a circular solution requires more than just a good idea; it demands a good team. In 2018 Team CORE was founded; a student team focused on the further development of this technique and many others. The team booked great progress and only after a few years CORE Chemistry was founded. A start-up to focus on realizing this technique and building the first factories in the Netherlands of their kind!
