3rd Green & Sustainable Chemistry Conference

May 13 @ 8:00 am - May 16 @ 5:00 pm

As the world’s population edges towards 9 billion, the strain on our planet’s resources is progressively increasing. In both the developed and developing world there is a growing demand for food, manufactured goods and improved access to clean water and fuel. The products of human manufacture, even those produced to benefit society, can have negative effects on human health and the environment.
The United Nations General Assembly has addressed these challenges in its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Contributions of chemistry, both in science and industries, are indispensable to meet the SDGs but such efforts will only be successful if they contribute in a sustainable and not just green manner to sustainability.
Other conferences in this field are focused mainly on the synthesis and technical aspects, however to contribute in a long-term, viable and globally applicable manner to the SDGs a much broader approach and exchange is necessary. The goal of the conference is therefore to bring together international researchers from academia and industry, from authorities and other institutions to communicate and share the latest developments across the broad and diverse fields of green and sustainable chemistry.
