Design of Chemicals, Novel Chemistries, Synthetic Pathways and Processes that Enable a Circular, More Sustainable Future
This session will highlight the processes that are inspired by novel design strategies leading to successful application of technologies to enable a circular-sustainable economy. Case studies will be presented to illustrate how industry/academia/NGO have successfully implemented the novel design in chemistries, synthetic pathways and processes that enable a circular, more sustainable economy and share the strategies that ultimately worked out for its end use to achieve its targeted goals. The examples from the session will describe the design and approaches taken, the challenges faced and how a solution for the challenge was achieved. Also, this session will discuss the importance of implementing sustainability as a basic design criterion to successfully achieve a closed-loop economy.
