FCC club lunch with Dr. Martin BRUDERMUELLER
Speaker: Dr. Martin BRUDERMUELLER
Topic: Can Asia improve energy efficiency?
Asia’s rampant growth in energy demand has the potential to derail economic and development opportunities. At the same time, climate targets can only be met with a major contribution from energy efficiency. China, as the largest energy consumer, has a huge lever for energy efficiency – but Asia will need to make fundamental transformations to the way it produces, uses, and recycles energy.
Dr. BRUDERMUELLER will discuss what technologies are currently available to meet the challenge, and will provide an inside look at what drives (and hinders) wide-scale adoption of energy efficiency solutions. He will also discuss a life cycle approach to carbon reduction and climate protection.
Dr. Martin BRUDERMUELLER has had a 23-year career with BASF, the world’s leading chemical company, and has held numerous roles internationally. He has been a member of the BASF Board of Executive Directors since 2006, where he is responsible for the Asia Pacific region and for the Plastics segment globally. Immediately prior to taking up this role, he was president of BASF’s Functional Polymers division.
