Sustainable Industrial Products, Processes and Systems
Organizers: Se Ryeon Lee, Research Group Leader, PPG; Kristin Nuzzio, PPG; Chad Landis, PPG
Customers are increasingly aware of the environmental impact of products they buy and use. As a response to this, a major driver in industrial innovation is sustainability to fulfill both customer needs and anticipate regulatory changes. This session will focus on highlighting industrial product design and process development with respect to sustainability, which may include energy savings, cost savings, water reduction, solvent reduction, sustainable feedstocks, and lowering CO2 emissions. Presentations describing specific examples or case studies of successful product development and/or challenges involved with commercialization are particularly welcome.
