The 25th Annual GC&E Conference: Sustainable Production to Advance the Circular Economy

The 2021 GC&E Conference will be held virtually across five days, June 14-18. The conference willinclude five days of live sessions, poster presentations and online networking opportunities, plus pre-conference virtual Friday sessions. On-demand video access will be available for registrants after the live meeting is over. The virtual format will allow us to bring together the global community of scientists, students, educators and leaders interested in advancing science and solutions to global sustainability challenges while ensuring everyone’s safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over forty technical sessions will cover the breadth and depth of green chemistry and engineering, and will illuminate the conference theme, Sustainable Production to Advance the Circular Economy. This theme directly links to the U.N. Sustainable Development Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, and reflects the role of chemistry and engineering in creating a closed-loop economy for a sustainable future.
