It is with great sadness that SusChem News has learnt of the sudden death of Dr. Alfred Oberholz.
Dr. Oberholz was a chairman of the SusChem board from 2005 to 2008 and was influential in the success of the platform. He was personally committed to the success of SusChem and a great champion for sustainable chemistry and industrial biotechnology.
He remained a strong supporter of 'SusChem thinking' when he stepped down from the chairmanship and retired from Evonik.
He will be greatly missed by the chemical community in Europe. Our thoughts are with Dr. Oberholz's wife and family at this time.
