The Chairs of this meeting believe that Green Chemistry is not truly green unless it is applied on an industrial scale - a scale which is capable of significantly influencing the global environment. The feature that distinguishes this GRC from its predecessors is the featuring of recent green processes implemented on an industrial scale, the emphasis on academic-industrial collaboration, and the discussion of the green chemical challenges for the future. The sessions are chaired and selected by recognized global leaders in the oil and gas industry, biomass processing, the polymer industry, comestibles, the pharmaceutical industry, green energy, and education and communication. The opening keynotes will discuss the greening of organic synthesis and the consumer industry, and the final session will focus on Global Green Challenges for the future. This will be the first GRC on Green Chemistry to be held outside of the USA and Europe, and the global nature of the field will be emphasized. We would particularly encourage students and early-stage researchers (both in industry and academia) to attend. Academic-Industrial dialogue is central to solving the challenges ahead, so we look forward to a healthy mix of attendees.
