Sustainability Success Stories in Industrial Chemical Processing
Organizer: Samy Ponnusamy, Fellow & Global Manager – Green Chemistry, MilliporeSigma
Based on the overwhelming responses from the 2018 session, Industrial Applications of Green Chemistry & Engineering Principles, this session will continue that momentum and expand the conversations and exchanges into result-oriented actions. This session will highlight industry innovations based on green chemistry and engineering principles, focusing on the development, design and life cycle processes. Case studies will be presented to illustrate how companies in different sectors have successfully implemented green chemistry and engineering principles into their processes in “closing the loop”. These examples will describe the design and development process, the challenges faced, and how these barriers were overcome. Additionally, this session will discuss the important collaborations along the value chain and with the stakeholders.
From the session, attendees should be able to understand how academia/industry innovates; industry develops products and processes, and the many factors that contribute to the launch and commercialization of new greener technologies to market. Presenters will be from both industry and academia in order to share the valuable insights of a diverse group on the challenges and opportunities in bringing sustainable chemistries and processes/products to aid global chemistry enterprise.
