Number: 021/18/97

Title: CHEMRAWN XIV - Green Chemistry

Coordinator(s): R. Pariser

Remarks: Collaborative venture with UNESCO

Completion Date: 2001 - project completed

Possibility and/or desirability of holding a review of theories, predictions and work done since CHEMRAWN VII being investigated with organizers of original CHEMRAWN VII.

The World Conference on Green Chemistry -"Toward Environmentally Benign Processes and Products" is being organized in Boulder, Colorado, USA, 9-13 June 2001.

Hundreds of scientists and policy makers from around the world will gather to discuss challenges to the quality of our environment in the new millenium. Through discussion among leaders in industry, government, academia and environmental organizations, this meeting will explore many sustainability issues which may be addressed and improved by chemical research and policy development.
