Official Information:

We look forward to meeting again in Dresden for a high-level and inspiring programme which will explore inter- and transdisciplinary aspects of green and sustainable chemistry.


1. Energy Conversion and Storage
This session includes greener and more sustainable solutions in the field of energy conversion and storage such as e.g. renewable energy conversion, renewable energy storage, hydrogen economy and many others if the links to green and sustainable chemistry are demonstrated.

2. CO2 Utilisation
Work related to e.g. CO2 capturing, storage and use in chemical synthesis and industrial processes, Power to X, technologies, reducing CO2 emissions on a green and sustainable manner can be presented here together with other topics where if the links between CO2 utilisation and green and sustainable chemistry are demonstrated.

3. Sustainable Chemistry and Environmental Science
This broad session allows presentation of diverse topics related to environmental science and sustainable chemistry. Submissions describing end-of-pipe treatment such e.g. wastewater treatment or quality of e.g. soil, water, air, environmental damages etc. will NOT be accepted. Instead, submissions addressing /demonstrating for example strategies for sustainability - towards a toxic free environment, a strategic approach to pharmaceuticals in the environment, input reduction of pollutants or design for environmental degradation (benign by design, mineralisation) are especially welcome.

4. Sustainable Chemistry in Education
In this session examples of how sustainable chemistry is implemented in education at different levels can be presented.

5. Sustainable Chemistry in Society
This session addresses examples of sustainable chemistry in society other than education e.g. economics, policy and legislation or social aspects.

6. Sustainable Chemistry and Alternative Business Models
This session focuses on alternative business models contributing to sustainable chemistry.

7. Sustainable Chemistry and Circular Economy
The aim of this session is to demonstrate the links between sustainable chemistry and circular economy. Topics such as e.g. design for circularity, products design for repair, reuse, refurbishment and recycling, circular use of resources (including secondary raw materials), managing substance, materials and products flows on sustainable manner are especially welcome.

8. Sustainability Assessment
In this session well known assessment tools such as e.g. Life Cycle Assessment or Materials Flow Analysis of greener or more sustainable processes can be presented along with new tools for sustainability assessment.

9. Recent Developments in Greener Synthesis and Catalysis
In this session, the latest developments in the field of green synthesis and catalysis can be presented.

10. Sustainability of Elements with Focus on Metals
Strategies of substitution of toxic elements, despising less complexed materials, strategies for critical elements can be presented in this session among other examples of sustainable use elements with focus of metals.

11. Photochemistry and Photocatalysis
This session is dedicated to use of photochemistry and photocatalysis in processes and technologies contributing to sustainability. Submissions addressing end-of-pipe solutions e.g. wastewater treatment are not considered to be suitable for this session.

12. Green Analytical Chemistry
A session dedicated to greener solutions in the field of analytical chemistry focused on green analytical methods.

13. Sustainable Chemistry in South-east Asia
South-east Asia is one of the most populated and also booming regions in green and sustainable chemistry. The session will allow to showcase ongoing research from this region.

14. Green and Sustainable Pharmacy
Pharmacy is indispensable for our health and well-being. As in chemistry there are multiple opportunities to increase greenness and sustainability.

15. Chemistry and Hydrogen Economy
Hydrogen is essential in the development of a low-carbon economy. Research related to hydrogen generation and storage is welcome for this session.

16. Chemistry and Climate Change
This session will cover the issues affecting climate and the environment and the pivotal role that sustainable chemistry has to play in solving them.
