26th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference


Call for Abstracts is Open

Submit your abstract by February 14, 2022 to participate in the 26th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference.

Tips for Submitting Your Abstract

  • Please review the symposia listed on gcande.org prior to clicking on the “Submit an Abstract” button. Please also read “What’s In and What’s Out” below for additional guidance.

  • Click the Submit an Abstract button. Under Specialty Meetings, select the 26th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference.

  • You will be asked to login to ACS’s Meeting Abstracts Programming System (MAPS) using your ACS ID to submit an abstract. If you do not have an ACS ID, you can create one for free using the link at the bottom of the login page (Don’t have an ACS ID? Create on for free). Note: ACS membership is not required.

Unsure If You Can Present Your Research in Person?

We strongly recommend you submit your abstract now so it can be considered. Once abstract submission closes, we will not be able to add you to the program, but we can easily remove your abstract if you are unable to attend.

At this time, we are planning to have a vaccine-required in-person meeting in Reston, VA, with some virtual components. Due to the current high-level of COVID spread, we are also looking at increasing the virtual component to accommodate more presenters who are unable to travel. We’ll do our best to accommodate you!

What’s In and What’s Out

Conference Theme: Thinking in Systems: Designing for Sustainable Use

This conference will accept abstracts that span the breadth and depth of green and sustainable
chemistry and engineering topics. While a wide variety of green chemistry and engineering topics are
covered in the technical program each year, the thematic focus on the stages of the chemical life cycle is
intended to challenge the green and sustainable chemistry and engineering communities to move
towards a systems thinking approach that will help advance sustainable production and the circular

Of particular interest are abstracts that emphasize a systemslevel, holistic, and life cycle perspectives.
We are seeking diverse perspectives from research, development, and demonstration scientists and
engineers in industry, and academia, business leaders, government, NGOs, etc.

What is not in scope are submissions related to environmental chemistry and engineering (fate and
effects testing; measurement, characterization, control, or effects of pollution, etc.), environmental
remediation, energy (fuels, biofuels, etc.), water or air (production or treatment), climate change, or
