Nobel Laureate to speak at American Chemical Society green chemistry conference
Date:6/2/2011

green chemistry, which offer real value to business. The conference also will address environmental challenges and explore sustainable solutions of today for future generations.

"For more than 200 years, we've been practicing industrial chemistry the same way," says Bob Peoples, Ph.D., director of the ACS GCI and conference co-chair. "Clearly chemistry has delivered wonderful benefits for the human race. At the same time, we know our production techniques are not sustainable on a long-term basis. Now is the time to shift our focus to rapidly renewable, bio-based raw materials for manufacturing, alternative energy sources and water conservation. Virtually all of modern society is underpinned by the chemistry of our materials and the products they enable. It only makes sense chemistry is the key to a sustainable future."

The conference program features 35 technical sessions, including green chemistry in the automotive industry, the uses of bio-fuels and new energy sources and promoting green chemistry education, entrepreneurship, and sustainable design.

In conjunction with the Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference, the EPA will recognize winners of the 2011 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award. Winners are honored for their outstanding chemical technology efforts, which incorporated principles of green chemistry into chemical design, manufacture and use. Collectively, past award winners have introduced technologies that have eliminated more than 460 million pounds of hazardous chemicals and solvents, saved more than a billion gallons of water, and eliminated more than 170 million pounds of carbon dioxide.
