One of the major goals of green chemistry is to promote the design and development of more efficient chemistries and chemical synthetic processes. To do this, key green chemistry measures must be established and tools to facilitate chemical, chemistry and process assessment must be developed. Join David Constable as he shares how to systematically measure, compare and evaluate synthetic chemistry routes using key green chemistry metrics. David will also explore the opportunities and challenges encountered in implementing green chemistry concepts within your research and development framework.
“Measures of Green Chemistry Performance” A short presentation followed by Q&A with speaker Dr. David Constable, Sustainability, Energy, Environment, Safety & Health Professional.
What You Will Learn
- Drivers for green chemistry metrics
- Building green chemistry metrics into synthetic route and chemical process design
- Create a business process for incorporating green chemistry metrics
- Choose the right metrics – not all metrics are worth collecting!
- And much more…
