Winner of the Next Economy Award 2015
During the Next Economy Award 2015 competition DexLeChem was chosen out of 175 applicants as the winner in the category "resources" for its ambitious and promising business model.
DexLeChem convinced the jury with representatives from industry, venture capital and NGO with its green high-tech approaches in chemical and biotechnological process optimization and development which lead to significant cost advantages in the production. The jury considered DexLeChem as a real pioneer in its field and enabler of the "Chemiewende" (German for the transition of the chemical industry based on finite fossil fuels towards a circular economy).
The competition was hosted by Stiftungsverein Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis e.V. in cooperation with the German Federal Ministry of Economics, the Council of Sustainable Development, and the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK). The award competition aims at demonstrating that sustainable behavior does not merely solve social and ecological problems, but can also enhance profitability and competitiveness.
