The 4th International IUPAC Conference on Green Chemistry (4th ICGC), co-organized by the Brazilian Chemical Society (SPB), will focus on broad topics such as benign synthesis/process (catalysis, solvents, reagents, analytical methods, synthetic strategies), green chemistry for energy production (fuels from biomass, hydrogen, fuel cells), chemicals from renewables (biomass, waste materials, CO2 recycling, responsible use of biodiversity), green engineering (process intensification, energy savings, separations and unit operations, reducing water usage), education in green chemistry and engineering (formal and informal education, outreach), and policy (corporate policy, governmental policy, NGO’s).

This conference is organized in partnership with the IUPAC project on Sustainable Education and Environmental Development (SEED) in Latin America. The aim of the project is to disseminate the green chemistry philosophy in all Latin American countries. The 4th ICGC will bring together the academic, industrial, governmental, and nongovernmental sectors in order to promote a more profound and extensive discussion in this emerging scientific movement.

The speakers (as well as participants) are from several parts and institutions of the worlds and will promote a very productive scientific discussion.
