The Ecochem Exhibition and Conference on Smart and Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering is taking place on 19 – 21 November in Basel, Switzerland and will feature an all-day SusChem session. In addition the various conference streams will include presentations from many SusChem personalities.

Watch Greet Van Eetvelde of INEOS and Chairperson of the SusChem Switzerland National technology Platform talk about this important conference.




SusChem sessions
The SusChem technical session will take place on the first day of Ecochem (Tuesday 19 November) after a plenary opening session with Hubert Mandery, Director-General of Cefic.

SusChem coordinator Jacques Komornicki will open the special day-long session that will include contributions on the two SusChem inspired public private partnership initiativesSPIRE (from Pádraig Naughton of Cefic) and the Biobased Industries JTI (from Ulrich Kettling of Clariant).

Many other streams across the three-day event will be of interest to SusChem stakeholders including sessions on ‘bio-based chemicals’, ‘clean synthesis and process intensification’, ‘industrial biotechnology’, ‘opportunities and challenges in sustainable chemistry’ and ‘financing sustainable chemistry’ amongst many others.

Eight streams
In total eight session streams are available during each day of Ecochem of which five (including the SusChem session) are free to register for. The other three streams comprise a comprehensive Strategy Summit on Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering that requires separate registration.
