22nd Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference | June 18-20, 2018 | Portland, Oregon

Innovation for Bio-based and Renewable Chemicals (Invited Presenters Only)

Session Organizer: David J. C. Constable, Science Director, ACS Green Chemistry Institute®; Amit Sehgal, Solvay

This symposium will create a dialog about molecules that have been targeted for further market development. At issue is the development of bio-based and renewable chemicals of known and significant EHS hazards (i.e., butadiene, isoprene, p-xylene) vs. the development of bio-based and renewable chemicals with significantly better EHS hazard profiles. Some of the areas to be discussed include:

  • Compelling examples of creating value through innovation that enables you to bring sustainability performance along with it.
  • Examples of how life cycle thinking can be used in chemical development to enhance positive benefits passed on to businesses and consumers.
  • Where is the bio-refinery in terms of its development/delivery?
  • Implications of using oxygenated molecules as are routinely found in nature as building blocks vs. the use of reduced molecules
