All Committees

On Monday, 27 January 2020, the entire AmCham EU secretariat visited the Dow site in Terneuzen, the Netherlands. The secretariat met some of the staff at the new Diamond Centre, toured the manufacturing plant and discussed many topics including inclusion and sustainability. It was incredibly valuable to understand the work of one of AmCham EU's member companies as well as being a highly interesting and educational visit. 
 

Dow Terneuzen is the second largest production site of The Dow Chemical Company in the world and the largest Dow site in the Benelux. The headquarters of the Benelux, one of the largest research departments of Dow Europe and the Dow Benelux integrated Center (DBIC) are also located in Terneuzen. The AmCham EU secretariat had the opportunitiy to learn about the processes by which the chemicals are created in order to produce plastics and were given presentations on cutting-edge thinking on sustainability solutions. Thank you to the team at Dow for hosting us and giving us insights that are very helpful for our work, and in particular to Anton van Beek, President of Dow Benelux and member of our Executive Council, as well as Eveline Kooiman, Kees Biesheuvel and Dennis Kredler.
