Industry and the manufacture of chemicals plays an important part in creating a more sustainable future. However it was and still often is a major polluter of the environment.
Reduction in waste, energy and resources and the manufacture of products with more sustainable properties contributes to more sustainable growth of the chemical industry and also to a more sustainable economy and a healthier environment.
The inaugural Green and Sustainable Chemistry Conference, organised by Elsevier in cooperation with Leuphana University, will take place 4-6 April 2016 in Berlin, Germany and will bring delegates up-to-date with latest thinking and practice in this area.
A unique aspect of this major conference is its broad scope, including developing countries. The meeting will bring together international researchers, from academia, authorities and industry, to communicate and share the latest developments across these diverse fields, including:
