The 22nd Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference (GC&E), hosted by the ACS Green Chemistry Institute, will be held in Portland, Oregon on June 18-20, 2018.
GC&E provides an opportunity for a diverse network of over 500 academic, industrial and government stakeholders to network and learn about the newest ideas in sustainable approaches to chemistry, chemicals and processes and products. This year’s conference is highlighting the theme, “Product innovation using greener chemistries.”
The Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference (GC&E) has been a meeting ground for advancing sustainable science and solutions since 1996. Hosted by the American Chemical Society’s Green Chemistry Institute, powered by leading thinkers in the field, and supported by many companies and organizations, the 22nd annual event will be will be held in Portland, Oregon on Monday June 18 to Wednesday June 20, 2018.
GC&E brings a unique mix of participants—approximately 35% industry, 28% academia, 15% university students, 7% government, 9% NGOs/NPOs. The mix and size of the conference—just over 500 participants—has been noted by many attendees perfect for networking.
Sessions range across the many areas green chemistry and engineering touch from organic synthesis to nanomaterials, sessions focused on different industries, to education.
Since 2016, the conference has been thematically tracking the chemical life cycle—from design to making to use to closing the loop. In 2018, we will be focusing on the use phase – connecting greener chemistries to the innovative products they enable.
