After Dresden, Moscow, Ottawa, Foz do Iguaçu and Durban, the IUPAC Green Chemistry Conferences will move to Italy...to Venice. We believe that the perception that Society has of the role of chemistry is being elevated by these IUPAC Conferences, and that chemists deserve to be perceived as people who create a dialogue with politicians, economists, entrepreneurs, and opinion formers. Green Chemists map the way to a sustainable future, and foster the development of industrially significant, and economic, breakthrough technologies.
Chairman, Organizing committee
University of Venice, Ca' Foscari, Italy
On behalf of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry – IUPAC- I sincerely welcome participants and guests of the 6th International IUPAC Conference on Green Chemistry. Five topics to be discussed at the Conference: Green Materials, Green Bioprocesses, Green Energy, Green industrial processes and Molecular innovation, Green Policy, Sustainability and Safety, - cover the areas of great importance, enabling the humanity with the tools to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. I hope, that the broad exchange of opinion and experience in the fields of elaboration of specific technologies and production structures, which will be performed in the framework of the Conference, will help chemists worldwide to implement principles and approaches of green chemistry into practice. And the beauty of Venice will make the 6th International IUPAC Conference on Green Chemistry unforgettable.
