Date:-Day I – Thursday October 5th October 2017, 11:30 am to 17:00 Hrs.
enue:- Hotel Ramada Powai & Convention Center, Mumbai, India
Over the years, the IGCW Convention & Ecosystem have consecutively integrated an exclusive session on Green Chemistry & Engineering for the State Pollution Control Boards during 3rd IGCW-2013 and 4th IGCW-2015. These PCB Conferences have been attended by the Senior Environment Engineers of State PCBs including Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Punjab, Goa, Arunachal Pradesh, Tamil Nadu & Karnataka.
Globally, the chemical communities and regulatory bodies are increasingly recognizing that Green Chemistry & Engineering (GC&E) based practices help in preventing environmental pollution at its source by minimizing and / or eliminating the hazards of chemical feed-stocks, reagents, solvents, and products.
Green chemistry is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances. Green chemistry applies across the life cycle of a chemical product, including its design, manufacture, use, and ultimate disposal. Green chemistry, also known as sustainable chemistry:
The overall objective in integrated waste management is to avoid disposal and, therefore, to proceed up the hierarchy in order, ultimately, to eliminate as much waste as possible in order to minimise the environmental impact. For chemical processes the principles of green chemistry can be applied to all options of the waste hierarchy and this approach is an integral part of the waste management system.
