15–19 August 2010, Ottawa, Canada
The Canadian Green Chemistry and Engineering Network (CGCEN) and the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) invite researchers, educators, business representatives, and policy experts from around the world to hear and share the latest advances in green chemistry at the 3rd IUPAC International Conference on Green Chemistry. It will be held 15–21 August 2010 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. This will be the first time that the conference in this biennial series has been held outside of Europe. In keeping with the theme of the conference, “The Road to Greener Industry,” industry researchers and representatives are particularly encouraged to attend.
Topics at the conference will include:
- benign synthesis (catalysis, solvents, reagents)
- green chemistry for energy production (hydrogen, fuel cell, greener energy production, fuels from biomass)
- chemicals from renewables (chemicals from biomass, waste plastics, waste CO2)
- green engineering (process intensification, energy savings, separations)
- policy (corporate and governmental)
- education in green chemistry and engineering
Ottawa is home to two universities, the National Research Council, many government labs, and private-sector companies working on green chemistry and sustainable development. As the capital of Canada, Ottawa offers unique attractions that celebrate the nation’s history and achievements, its cultural diversity, and its immense natural beauty. The venue’s location on the Rideau and Ottawa Rivers, at the border of the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, creates a unique blend of English and French cultures, adding a special flair and charm to a safe, clean, and spectacular environment. From renowned museums and galleries, to an extensive and thriving restaurant scene, and a broad range of entertainments, there is much to discover.
