The 23rd Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference and 9th International Conference on Green and Sustainable Chemistry is taking place in Reston, VA from June 11 through 13, 2019.
Once again we are chairing a session focused on the electronics industry and its supply chain. While the theme is "closing the loop" of the chemical life cycle, the conference will accept abstracts that span the breadth and depth of green and sustainable chemistry and engineering topics. Of particular interest are abstracts that emphasize a systems level, life cycle perspective focusing on the role green and sustainable chemistry plays in the design and implementation of recycling, separation chemical/molecular vs physical), and concentration or valorization of byproducts/wastes/waste heat/CO2 and other chemicals.
