For 20 years, the mission of the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute® (ACS GCI) has been to catalyze and enable the implementation of green chemistry and engineering throughout the global chemical enterprise. Innovation in sustainable and green chemistry and engineering holds the key to solving many environmental and human health issues facing our world today. Thus, ACS GCI efforts focus on strategically promoting and advancing green chemistry.

 

The 20th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference (GC&E) will be held June 14-16, 2016 in Portland, OR. As the longest running green chemistry conference in the United States, GC&E invites scientists, decision-makers, students, and advocates to come together, compare findings, and discuss the science of the future. Speakers at our symposia are recognized as distinguished leaders and experts.

 

With three days of programming, the GC&E conference will feature 30 technical sessions, a poster session, green exhibit hall, and keynotes lectures. Special features include the GC&E Student Workshop held on June 13th, a Careers Workshop, and the 6th Annual ACS GCI Roundtable Poster Reception.

 

For the 20th GC&E conference, we’re looking for cutting edge research that’s tackling global challenges and advancing the field of chemistry. Broad championing themes that cover dynamic topics, from policy implications to helping people speak about chemistry in a common language.

 

More details on the submission process and when we will be accepting proposals for symposia for the 20th GC&E meeting coming soon! Be sure to keep an eye on www.gcande.org for 2016 announcements.

 

How can you help advance green chemistry in the 21st century?
