The abstract submission portal is open through January 14, 2019.
- You do not to be an ACS Member to submit an abstract, but you will be asked to login with your ACS ID. Instructions to create one if you don’t have one are on the page.
- Once logged in, you will be on the Welcome Page. Click on the Submission tab and “Create New Submission” to get started.
- Enter your abstract title and in the body please include a description with these three elements:
- Describe how the principles of green chemistry & engineering were used in the creation of the product
- How does the product improve the health, safety and/or environmental impact compared to existing products? Please include metrics, third-party testing, certification, and description of chemistry when possible.
- What are the scientific or process innovations that went into this product?
- Upload a picture of your product if possible. If not, please include a link in the abstract body.
- On the next page, please select “poster only” for your presentation type and “Product Showcase: Delivering Green Chemistry to the Market” for your symposium.
- The rest should be self-explanatory but if you have any questions, please email Christiana Briddell.

Students registered for the conference can attend the free GC&E Student Workshop on Monday June 17, 2013 at the ACS Headquaters in Washington, DC.
“The Inaugural Green Chemistry and Engineering Business Plan Competition was a great success! With this competition, the ACS Green Chemistry® Institute has given the innovators in our field a valuable tool to help bring exciting new technologies to market. I look forward to learning more about the cutting-edge ideas that will be showcased in 2013.”
–Michael Lefenfeld, CEO, Signa Chemistry, and Chair of the 2012 GC&E Business Plan Competition
