Speakers include: Michael Graetzel from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and one of the 3 most highly cited chemists in the world and John Warner, President & Chief Technology Officer of The Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry LLC and, with Paul Anastas, one of the founders of the field of Green Chemistry.

Abstracts on green and sustainable chemistry related topics that directly relate to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals are particularly welcome to supplement the invited programme.

Topics include:

• Bioresources – new applications and new capabilities
• Inorganic resources – sustainable use of critical resources and materials
• Waste reduction, waste capture and recycling – examples, opportunities and limitations
• New molecules, materials and products – targeted design for sustainability
• Organic synthesis – recent green developments
• Catalysis – recent developments in bio catalysis, organic and inorganic catalysis
• Photochemistry – photocatalysis, synthesis and solar chemistry
• Renewable energy – conversion and storage
• Green and sustainable pharmacy
• Environmental science and sustainable chemistry
• Cleaner production – legislation and sustainable chemistry
• The UN Sustainable Development Goals and sustainable chemistry
• Industry and sustainable chemistry – focus on start-ups
• New business models
• Circular economy and sustainable chemistry
• Education and sustainable chemistrys
