This conference not only provides a forum for chemistry related topics such as synthesis and technical aspects of chemistry and its products, but the broader context that is necessary to enable long term viable and globally applicable contributions of chemistry to the SDGs.
The conference aims to provide a forum for participants from academia and industry, from authorities and other institutions to address these challenges in a broad unique manner the latest developments across the broad and diverse fields of Green and Sustainable Chemistry (for more details see home).
This conference is organised by Elsevier
