Sustainable and Green Chemistry
This year’s symposium will be held at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen and is scheduled on Friday the 17th of November, 2023.
With an increasing pressure on our natural resources and our climate, big changes are needed to make our chemical industry greener, cleaner, and more sustainable. In the northern Netherlands, companies and universities are successfully working together to make these necessary changes. To highlight these achievements, the theme of this year’s symposium is ‘Sustainable and Green Chemistry’. The program consists of oral presentations from several companies as well as researchers from universities of applied sciences. The symposium will finish off with a panel discussion in which 3 experts can be questioned and debated about their opinion, vision and experiences on the topic.
The sub-topics and speakers can be found below. More information on the exact program and participation will follow soon.
