IGCW 09 Events
Green Chemistry is the new paradigm for the pharma and chemical industries to deliver products and services in benign ways, untainted by toxic routes and environmental damage. And this means much more! It means novel products, new chemistries, innovative engineering and therefore manifold opportunities and better profitability. Green Chemistry has the potential to enhance the economical and environmental competitiveness of the chemical industry
It’s time to bring your organisation to a new avenue for addressing the critical challenge of reducing E-factor (kgs waste generated / per kg production) by exploring innovative technologies for preventing pollution as profit center.
As a first step towards this, participate in Industrial Green Chemistry Workshop (IGCW-2009), exclusively organized for the Senior Management, Chief Executive Officers, Technical Directors, etc., of fine chemical manufacturing companies including Drugs and Pharma, Agrochemicals, Dyes and Pigments, Fine and Specialty Chemical companies.
IGCW 2009 is expected to be truly a global event, where over 1000 stakeholders of Chemical Industries would come together for the first time to explore the possibilities of industrializing Green Chemistry and Green Engineering Technologies.
The event is designed to take green chemistry from the cauldrons of the laboratory to the corridors of industry. It will involve from concepts to execution. This event will focus on green chemistry and engineering in chemistry intensive areas such as in fine chemicals which will include dyes and pharma, agrochemicals, colorants, personal care chemicals, etc. It will look at revisiting chemistries and see how at source changes are being incorporated for greening the processes. Topics to be covered are catalysis, alternative reaction media, novel process engineering, process intensification, micro-reactions, etc. Other issues like regulatory mechanisms, R&D requirements, venture capital and financial funding will also be highlighted.
The 3-day workshop will consist of technical presentations, discussions and brain storming on some of the most challenging live industrial problems. Eminent researchers, scientists, industries, research institutes, etc. will present their work and case studies on their innovation to address some of the most polluting and hazardous reactions. Also, there will be discussions on challenges faced by industry (technical, financial, regulatory, etc) in implementing Green Chemistry.
This workshop is an important step forward, yet not the ultimate. The workshop intends to set forth thoughts on how to enhance the practice of green chemistry through an action that is economically as well as ecologically effective.
