The Business eEd:

What’s it all about –

Green chemistry, also called sustainable chemistry, is a philosophy of chemical research and engineering that encourages the design of chemicals and chemical processes to improve operational performance, productivity or efficiency whilst reducing costs, inputs, energy consumption, waste, or pollution.

Today, many of the world’s leading corporations have put sustainable production at the core of their company mission. These companies are focussed on the triple bottom line of economic, environmental and social performance. Sustainability is now viewed by these companies and the financial markets as fundamental to the current and future value of their business as reflected by the growing importance of the Dow Jones Sustainability and FTSE4Good Indexes. These companies and many others are actively seeking supplier and partner companies that can assist them in driving sustainable development across their production activities.

The exhibition and conference will serve as a first of its kind networking and business event focussed on promoting sustainable chemistry and engineering towards a better future. Successful practitioners and experts in the field will present on the many current and future green and sustainable opportunities in the chemical industry. It will bring business face-to-face with potential customers; keep industry leaders informed about the latest trends and developments in a constantly changing global market.

Through the application of Green Chemistry and Green Engineering principles, exhibiting supplier companies will assist end user companies to develop more innovative and competitive products and processes which will enable less wasteful, and more environmentally and socially acceptable chemical production. The exhibition aims to promote solutions, which are both commercial and profitable to the chemical industry.

The Event:

Green Chemistry presents industries with an outstanding opportunity for growth and competitive advantage. This is because there is currently a significant shortage of green technologies: it is estimated that only 10% of current technologies are environmentally benign; another 35% could be made benign relatively easily. The remaining 65% have yet to be invented! Green Chemistry also creates cost savings: when hazardous materials are removed from materials and processes, all hazard-related costs are also removed, such as those associated with handling, transportation, disposal, and compliance.

Today, many of the world’s leading corporations have put sustainable production at the core of their company mission. These companies are focussed on the triple bottom line of economic, environmental and social performance. Sustainability is now viewed by these companies and the financial markets as fundamental to the current and future value of their business as reflected by the growing importance of the Dow Jones Sustainability and FTSE4Good Indexes. These companies and many others are actively seeking supplier and partner companies that can assist them in driving sustainable development across their production activities.

Production and benefits:

  • Discover many new green and sustainable chemicals, ingredients, technologies, products and suppliers;
  • Attend the free seminar sessions designed to give you an insight into some of the newest innovations in the industry;
  • Ask the experts about the biggest opportunities and challenges facing the chemical industries in the next decade at the exhibition discussion Forum;
  • Book a place at the prestigious exhibition conference and hear some of the most prominent figures in the industry share their recent findings and knowledge;
  • Discover the newest products from some of the most dynamic companies in the industry in the New Products Zone;

  • Explore the latest findings from all five continents;
