Dialogue with partners
Bayer’s researchers maintain a constant dialogue with scientists at leading universities, as well as with customers and cooperation partners. The focus of this communication is on jointly addressing questions related to tomorrow’s challenges – fully in line with our mission “Bayer: Science For A Better Life.”
In the cover picture of our Annual Report, chemist Dr. Christoph Gürtler – projectmanager at Bayer MaterialScience – and scientist Daniela d’Elia from rwth Aachen University discuss how to use climate-damaging carbon dioxide as a valuable raw material for sustainable industrial production. This is the objective of the “Dream Production” project launched by Bayer and its partners in science and industry. The idea is to chemically bind CO2 and use it to partially replace conventional fossil raw materials in the manufacture of polymers. The picture shows the two researchers viewing a scanning electron micrograph of a polyurethane foam.
