26th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference

GC&E Product Innovation Showcase

MEET THE INNOVATORS!

4:35 – 6:35 p.m., Tuesday, June 7
Hyatt Regency Reston Ballroom

The GC&E Product Innovation Showcase features companies using the design principles of sustainable and green chemistry and engineering to create or contribute to innovative products. Participating companies will present a “hands-on” display of the product and describe the products greener technical innovations. The Product Showcase is part of the popular GC&E Poster Session & Reception.

  • Unique opportunity to present at the largest green chemistry conference in the Americas

  • Showcase the green chemistry and engineering innovations of your process or product

  • Highlight health, safety and environmental improvements compared to the competition

  • Flexible display options and ability to showcase product

How to Join the Showcase

Abstract Submission is now closed. If you are interested in participating in the GC&E Product Innovation Showcase, please email Christiana Briddell.

Abstracts should describe/include:

  • How the principles of green chemistry and green engineering are used in the design of the product.
  • How the product improves (or is expected to improve) the health, safety and/or environmental impact compared to existing products. Please include metrics, third-party testing, certification, and description of chemistry when possible.
  • The scientific or process innovations going into this product.
  • A picture or link to your product.
  • What you would be able to present safely in a display (this could include examples of an end consumer product).

FAQs

I’d like to know more. Who do I talk to?

Contact Christiana Briddell, ACS GCI Communications Manager, at c_briddell@acs.org.

How much do I have to pay to participate?

There is no cost to submit your abstract/product for the product showcase. If you abstract/product is selected, you must register for the GC&E Conference. You may elect to attend the full conference, just the day of the event. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

Product Showcase presenters will have the option to use a provided poster display board and/or table.

How are submissions evaluated?

All submissions will be reviewed by the Product Showcase session chairs, whom will evaluate them based on the submission criteria. Acceptance notifications will go out late March 2022.

Where and when is the event?

The GC&E Product Showcase will be held as part of the Poster Session and Reception of the 26th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference. This two-hour event will take place 4:35-6:45 p.m on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency Reston in Reston, Virginia. All presenters and attendees are required to be fully vaccinated and wear masks for this event. Please see the Attendee Safety page for details.

Who attends the conference?

The Poster Session & Reception is a popular and well-attended by all conference goers—there are no other competing events scheduled at this time. The Conference attracts a cross section of scientific leaders from industry and academia as well as students, government scientists and others.

What kind of products can be submitted?

We are inviting submissions from innovators, start-ups & early-stage companies through established B2B and B2C brands.

  • The product innovation should be well developed, if not already on the market, and product samples should be displayed as appropriate.
  • Submissions need to specifically demonstrate a green chemistry and/or engineering approach; it is not sufficient to have a sustainable product.
  • Please remember that green chemistry is not environmental chemistry. The focus should be on the design of the product.
  • You must provide sufficient justification of why it is or is expected to be greener with an overview of the chemistry when possible.
  • We would like B2B companies to bring an example(s) of the end consumer product. For example, if you create biobased polymers, bring an example of their application. The product showcase should have a physical component.
How do I participate?

Your must submit an abstract through our abstract submission portal which is open through February 14, 2022.

  1. You do not to be an ACS Member to submit an abstract, but you will be asked to login with your ACS ID. If you don’t have one, instructions to create one are on the page.
  2. Once logged in, you will be on the Welcome Page. Click on the Submission tab and “Create New Submission” to get started.
  3. Enter your abstract title and in the body please include a description with these four elements:
    1. Describe how the principles of green chemistry & engineering were used in the creation of the product
    2. How does the product improve the health, safety and/or environmental impact compared to existing products? Please include metrics, third-party testing, certification, and description of chemistry when possible.
    3. What are the scientific or process innovations that went into this product?
    4. Briefly describe what you will bring to display
  4. Upload a picture of your product if possible. If not, please include a link in the abstract body.
  5. On the next page, please select “poster only” for your presentation type and “Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Product Innovation Showcase for your symposium.
  6. The rest should be self-explanatory but if you have any questions, please email Christiana Briddell.
