  • 9th IUPAC International Conference on Green Chemistry

    iupac 2020 web banner for logos 01 1The 9th IUPAC International Conference on Green Chemistry is organised by the Association of Greek Chemists (AGC), in collaboration with the IUPAC Interdivisional Committee on Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development (ICGCSD) and the Hellenic Green Chemistry Network. It has been endorsed by IUPAC and several other organisations and associations related to Green and Sustainable Chemistry.

    When: 18-22 October 2020

    Where: Athens, Greece


    The main aim of the IUPAC International Conference series on Green Chemistry (ICGC) is to bring together all relevant stakeholders from academia, research, industry, NGOs, policy makers and society, to exchange and disseminate knowledge and ideas that promote the concept of green chemistry, sustainable development and circular economy. This year’s conference is the ninth of the ICGC series, the first having been organised in Germany (2006), followed by Russia (2008), Canada (2010), Brazil (2012), South Africa (2014), Italy (2016), Russia (2017) and Thailand (2018).

    The ICGC-9 will cover the following general topics

    • Green Chemistry in Academia, Research and Industry
    • Green Chemistry in Education and Society
    • Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development, Bioeconomy and Circular Economy

    The scientific programme will deal with global trends and developments in the field of green and sustainable chemistry, as well as with research and technology aspects of high importance to specific parts of the world. For example, the topic of biomass valorisation will be discussed both with regard to agricultural, as well as forestry wastes, to be of interest to relevant countries and regions. The use of non-toxic solvents, the development of low/no waste industrial chemical processes, the use of bio-based or degradable plastics, as well as the increase of societal and political awareness on green chemistry practices, will comprise of topics with a broader audience. The contribution of Green Chemistry to the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nationswill also be  highlighted. Within this context, both new fundamental chemistry approaches, as well as dedicated industry-oriented processes will be discussed, in the different areas of chemistry and chemical engineering.

    The conference programme will comprise of Plenary, Keynote, Oral and Poster presentations, and will include workshops, e.g. on bio-based polymers and plastics recycling, presentation of awards and prizes, as well as attractive social events.

    Highlights of the conference will be communicated by IUPAC via its news magazine Chemistry International, and the proceedings will be published in a Special Issue of IUPAC’s official journal, Pure and Applied Chemistry. Special issues of high-impact journals in the field of Green and Sustainable Chemistry will also be produced, with selected papers of the conference, following standard peer-review procedures.
