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

Organizers: Samy Ponnusamy, Millipore Sigma and Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering; Srinivasan Ambatipati, McNeese State University

This session will highlight the processes that are inspired by novel design strategies to enable a circular-sustainable economy. Case studies will be presented to illustrate how industry/academia/NGO have successfully implemented novel design strategies to achieve circular-sustainable 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. Also, this session will discuss the importance of implementing sustainability as a basic design criterion to successfully achieve a closed-loop economy.
