2nd Green & Sustainable Chemistry Day

We are convinced that sustainable chemistry will inspire a change of pace and the new mind-set that society needs in order to become more sustainable, smart and inclusive. 

The Swiss Green & Sustainable Chemistry Days 2021 will focus on sustainable solutions to society’s big challenges and the contributions that chemical sciences can and must provide.

Focus Topic: Renewable Feedstock and Biomass Valorization

Join us for us this one-day event at ILMAC Basel, free of charge and designed for interacting and connecting with experts in the field of Renewable Feedstock and Biomass Valorization.
