3rd EuCheMS Congress on Green and Sustainable Chemistry (EuGSC)

September 3, 2017 – September 6, 2017 all-day
University of York
York YO10 5DD

This is the 3rd of a series of EuCheMS-sponsored congresses on Green and Sustainable Chemistry that started four years ago in Budapest, Hungary and continued in Lisbon in 2015. The second edition gathered 212 participants from 23 countries world wide.
We have secured a strong line up of plenary speakers for the conference: Paul Anastas, James Clark, Ben Feringa, Nicholas Gathergood, Babette Pettersen and Michael Gratzel. There are opportunities for delegates to make oral contributions (including keynote lectures) and present posters. Registration and abstract submission are now open and I would encourage early registration as delegate numbers are strictly limited to 220 due to the capacity of the lecture theatres available. Registration and abstract submission should be made via the conference website:

The deadline for abstract submissions is this Friday (20th January), however, if this short notice associated with this notification causes you a problem, email ( with your intent to submit an abstract and this can be extended.

The conference will cover all aspects of green and sustainable chemistry including (but not limited too):

  • green solvents
  • waste and/or biomass as chemical feedstocks
  • CO2 as a chemical feedstock
  • elemental sustainability
  • green chemistry metrics
  • life cycle and techno-economic benchmarking of green processes
  • energy efficient processing
