Washington, D.C. – The longest running conference dedicated to green chemistry and engineering celebrates its silver anniversary in 2021. Hosted by the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute (ACS GCI), the 2021 conference will be fully virtual, with five days of live sessions, poster presentations and online networking opportunities. On-demand access will be available for registrants after the live meeting is over. The virtual format will allow the ACS to bring together the global community of scientists, students, educators and leaders interested in advancing science and solutions to global sustainability challenges, while ensuring everyone’s safety, a core value of ACS, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Plan on June 14-18 to attend sessions spanning the breadth and depth of green and sustainable chemistry and engineering, with a special focus on the 2021 theme, Sustainable Production to Advance the Circular Economy. This theme directly links to U.N. Sustainable Development Goal 12, Responsible Consumption and Production, and reflects the role of chemistry and engineering in creating a closed-loop economy for a sustainable future.
