GREEN-CHEM: towards small footprint solutions

We believe the future of chemistry is green. By using more sustainable, renewable and biodegradable materials we can create better and safer chemical products and design more efficient and sustainable processes to synthesize them.

 

Only by building a global collaboration and knowledge sharing model can we achieve those goals.

 

 

GREEN-CHEM is a global green chemistry network that brings together experts from all over the world. The network aims to create new know-how by enhancing research collaboration between leading international experts from academia and industry. By training students and industry professionals, GREEN-CHEM will improve knowledge sharing. Enhancing general awareness and public interest for important green chemistry issues is a service we owe to society.
