Joint green chemistry meeting in Washington, D.C., features top experts on environment

Leaders in the burgeoning field of green chemistry from across the globe will gather in Washington, D.C., from June 20-24, to examine under the microscope the latest processes and products designed to reduce or eliminate chemical materials hazardous to the environment.

The joint meeting of the 2nd International Conference on Green and Sustainable Chemistry and the 9th Annual Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference will be held at the Hotel Washington, 15th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW. It will feature workshops and technical sessions on a wide range of topics from nanotechnology to sustainable energy sources. Scientists from academe, industry and government will lead the discussions.

Highlights of the meeting include:

  • Keynote speakers Ronald Breslow, Ph.D., University Professor, Chemistry and Biology, Columbia University; George M. Whitesides, Ph.D., Woodford L. and Ann A. Flowers University Professor, Harvard University; Nobel Laureate Ryoji Noyori, Ph.D., President, RIKEN (The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research), and University Professor, Nagoya University; and Linda Fisher, Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer, DuPont.
  • The 2005 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards will be presented June 20 at 5:30 P.M. at the National Academy of Sciences. The awards, presented by the Environmental Protection Agency, have annually honored scientists who develop innovative chemistry to lower pollution. An independent panel of experts, convened by the American Chemical Society, chooses the winners.
  • A special outdoor event will be held June 23 from noon to 1 P.M. at McPherson Square Park in downtown Washington, D.C., to promote public awareness of the numerous environmentally friendly and sustainable technologies that improve everyday life. Experts will describe the latest green chemistry technology in easy-to-understand terms for the nonscienti
