The father of green chemistry keynote speaker at the Mistra SafeChem Programme Symposium

Professor Paul Anastas, known as The father of green chemistry, will be the keynote speaker at the Mistra SafeChem Programme Symposium in September. He and the other speakers, both national and international, will share interesting information about the work for green and sustainable chemistry.

 

The purpose of Mistra SafeChem is to reduce or eliminate toxic chemicals and promote a shift to a sustainable society. The framework for green chemistry and the tools for evaluating effects and risks with synthesis and process paths can promote that development. This is the focal point of this symposium.

Speakers from both research and industry

You will be inspired by international keynote speakers and presentations by the research and industry community:
