The 2nd International Symposium on Green Chemistry Renewable Carbon and Eco-Efficient Processes (ISGC2) was held from May 21–24th in La Rochelle, France. The conference aimed to cover the crucial problems arising from the conversion of renewable carbon and also the recent advances in the search of innovative processes for the conversion of biomass and wastes with high eco-efficiency.

The speakers included Green Chemistry Editorial Board members Professors Walter Leitner, Chao-Jun Li, Paul Anastas and Shu Kobayashi, and Advisory Board members Professors James Clark, Avelino Corma and Philip Jessop.

Professor Walter Leitner, Chair of the Green Chemistry Editorial Board, and Sarah Ruthven, Editor of Green Chemistry, presented the Green Chemistry sponsored poster prizes. The winners were Cinthia Mena Duran for her poster ‘Applications of Starbons’ and Guangyi Li for the poster ‘Synthesis of renewable diesel with 2-methylfuran and hydroxyacetone’. Congratulations to Cinthia and Guangyi on receiving these prizes.

Green Chemistry is pleased to be publishing a themed issue containing selected papers from the ISGC2 conference, which will be appearing later this year.
