Design of Chemicals, novel chemistries, synthetic pathways and processes that enable a circular, more sustainable economy

Organizers: Samy Ponnusamy, PhD, Fellow & Global Manager – Green Chemistry, MilliporeSigma, St Louis, MO; Srinivasan Ambatipati, PhD, Assistant Professor & Coordinator of Chemical Engineering, McNeese State University, Lake Charles, LA

This session will highlight the processes that are inspired by novel design strategies to enable a circular-sustainable economy. Case studies that include novel chemistries and design of synthetic pathways will be presented to illustrate how industry/academia/NGO have successfully implemented sustainability as a basic design criterion to achieve a closed-loop economy. The examples from the session will describe the design and approaches taken, the challenges faced and how a solution for the challenge was achieved. The topics chosen will be from diverse group of industrial applications and backgrounds.
