Event description

Description

Increasing demand for chemicals worldwide, depleting resources, stricter legislation and the rising cost of waste disposal are placing increasing pressure on the chemical and related industries. For any organisation to survive in the current climate, the issue of sustainability must be fundamental to the way it operates. This free workshop provides an exciting opportunity to gain advice and scientific expertise, explore a broad range of cutting-edge case studies on green chemical manufacturing and learn about the methodologies and tools available to facilitate practical solutions. The workshop is open to all with an interest in the future of sustainable manufacturing. The programme for the day includes:

  • Industrial case studies from Croda, Thomas Swan, GSK and Biome
  • Insight into Industrial Decarbonisation and Energy Efficiency Roadmaps to 2050
  • Drivers for change including the Business Case for Green and REACH
  • Guidance on the transition to green manufacturing and circular economy
  • Guidance on greener solvent selection and substitution
  • Platform molecules and clean synthesis
  • Online learning resources and associated tools including metrics and solvent selection
  • Opportunities for knowledge transfer, discussion and networking
