Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering in the 21st Century

The 2013 Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference (GC&E), was held June 18-20, 2013 in the Washington DC area. Over three days of programming included world-renowned keynote speakers, poster sessions and more than 25 technical sessions on subjects such as designing safer chemicals and products, bio-based chemical feedstocks, green chemistry education, and new business through green chemistry innovations. More than 220 oral and poster presentations were given. Check back for access to the conference recordings.

Save the date for the 2014 GC&E Conference to be held June 17-19, 2014 in North Bethesda, MD. GC&E is an opportunity for you—whether you’re a scientist, decision-maker, student, or advocate—to propel your understanding of green chemistry and engineering forward, build valuable connections, and share your research and insights with others.
