CO2 Utilisation Green Chemistry themed issue now online and free to access

We are delighted to announce that the Green Chemistry themed issue CO2 Utilisation is now online and free to access until the end of August 2021.

The massive consumption of fossil fuels, among other human activities, has released substantial amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, provoking both global warming and dramatic climate changes. As such, carbon dioxide capture, removal and utilisation continues to attract significant attention. As an ideal carbon source, efficient transformation of CO2 enables the sustainable synthesis of high value-added chemicals and fuels.

Guest Edited by Professor Da-Gang Yu and Professor Liangnian He, this collection reviews the very recent achievements of CO2 utilisation in various areas of green and sustainable chemistry.

13th Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry 2021

Green Chemistry Summer School: Venice, 4th-10th July 2021

This 2021 Edition of the Summer School follows the previous one held online as a result of COVID-19 pandemic (www.unive.it/ssgc).

The Summer School does offer the unique opportunity to bring together a number of experts in the field of Green Chemistry and young researchers. This synergy of competencies is a valuable occasion to promote and facilitate diffusion and transfer of the knowledge in this emerging and evolving field.

AIMS

  • Teach postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers in chemistry and associated disciplines from all over the world, either from academia or industry.
  • Indicate Green Chemistry as fundamental tool to approach pollutant reduction at source.
  • Give a view of the state-of-the-art on Green Chemistry researches in the last decades.
  • Facilitate a profitable and continuous exchange of ideas and information among the students, the instructors and the different stakeholders for the establishment of long-lasting scientific relationships. All these students will be ambassadors of Green Chemistry in their institutions, in their Countries, and to their peers, and so invited to form international networks of scientists.

The Summer School is organized and managed by the Green Sciences for Sustainable Development Foundation (www.gssd-foundation.org), a non-profit Foundation based in Venice, Italy. The Foundation’s website provides access to various lectures, proceedings, and reports of the previous editions of the Summer Schools.
