The  22nd Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference

The  22nd Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference being held in Portland, Oregon from June 18-20, 2018. The theme of this year’s conference will be around Product Innovation Using Greener Chemistries.  

On Tuesday, June 19th from 4:35-6:35 p.m the  Green Chemistry & Engineering Product Showcase   will be held at the Portland Downtown Hilton. Participants will have the opportunity to highlight a product and the innovative, sustainable science behind it in front of the Conference’s highly engaged audience. The event is part of the popular and well-attended GC&E Poster Reception. Table space for display of the product will be provided, as well as space to hang a poster.

To participate, please submit an abstract (see details below) by February 12th. Abstracts will be reviewed and acceptances will be issued by early April.
