Highlighting WesTEC 2023: Advancing Possiblities

For the seventh year, the Royal Society of Chemistry was delighted to support the Western Canada Operations Science and Technical Excellence Conference (WesTEC), hosted by Dow Canada. This year marked the 32nd WesTEC, which showcases and recognizes outstanding developments and achievements within Dow Canada. This year’s theme of “Advancing Possibilities” serves to recognize the challenges the world faces, and the vital role of the chemical sciences in meeting those challenges.

Dow’s dedication to create the world’s first net-zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions ethylene and derivatives complex, as well as their commitment to transition completely to net-zero emissions by 2050, demonstrates their determination to build a more sustainable planet. The Royal Society of Chemistry is proud to support Dow’s efforts and play a role in highlighting the outstanding achievements of the scientists working there.

As in previous years, the Royal Society of Chemistry was thrilled to sponsor the Best Presentation and Best Exhibit awards at the 2023 WesTEC. This year, the Best Presentation award was given to Ramadan Ahmed and the Best Exhibit award was given to Jenny Boutros and Steven Stack. Congratulations to the winners, and we look forward to next year!
