Special with Martin Brudermüller: "You can build the universe with chemistry"

This is our first English episode for a very special guest: Thanks Martin Brudermueller for joining ELEMENTary! Martin was the CEO of BASF (2018-2024) and parallely took over the CEFIC presidency in 2020. In this episode, we spoke with Martin about the huge task to tackle climate change, the Chemical Industry in Europe, the ‘Green Deal’, but also about the many personal and professional insights he gained over the years. We learned a lot in this conversation – but hear for yourselves!
