International Symposium on Green Chemistry
10-13 January 2001, Delhi, India

> Back to Calendar

This symposium will address new products, processes, and services that attempt to achieve benefits from sustainable development. Such efforts require approaches that reduce the material and energy intensity of chemical processes and products, minimize or eliminate dispersion of harmful chemicals in the environment, maximize use of renewable resources, and extend durability and recyclability of products in a way that increases industrial competitiveness.

Some of the challenges for chemists include discovering and developing new synthetic pathways using alternative feedstocks or more selective chemistry, identifying alternative reaction conditions and solvents for improved selectivity and energy minimization, and designing less toxic and inherently safer chemical products. The organizers of the symposium hope to foster the establishment of industry— government partnerships with universities and international laboratories to design and implement pollution prevention technologies other than waste management.

Scientific sessions will cover metal complexes for green earth chemistry, biocatalysis and its use in chemical synthesis, ecofriendly chemical technologies, greenhouse gases and their elimination, fresh-water ecosystems, green catalysts and reagents for industrial applications, energy and environment, and air pollutants and their elimination. Approximately 500 scientific participants from around the world are expected to attend this symposium.
