Other conferences in this field are focused mainly on the synthesis and technical aspects of green chemistry. To contribute in a long-term, viable and globally applicable manner to the Sustainable Development Goals, a much broader approach and knowledge exchange is necessary. The goal of the conference is therefore to bring together international researchers from academia and industry, from authorities and other institutions, from all parts of the worlds, to communicate and share the latest developments across the broad and diverse fields of green and sustainable chemistry.

Topics will include:

  • Energy conversion and storage
  • Inorganic resources and materials
  • Recent developments in green synthesis
  • Bioresources
  • Photochemistry and photocatalysis
  • Start-ups and sustainable chemistry
  • Synthesis and catalysis
  • Sustainable chemistry in environmental science
  • Sustainable pharmacy
  • Sustainable chemistry in developing countries
  • Sustainable chemistry in economy
  • Green and sustainable chemistry education
