#663 - Practical Approaches to Sustainability and Business Success (TE002)
Chemical processes provide a number of products and materials used in various applications such as health care, consumer products and electronics. Productivity, profitability and environmental consciousness have become key elements in modern process and product design. Reducing the environmental footprint while keeping production costs affordable are key elements in achieving sustainability and business success. This session is discussing approaches to alternative products designs and sustainable production routes that benefit from a re-thinking of conventional concepts in order to decrease the overall environmental footprint. Presentations are welcome that address novel and practical approaches to business success through sustainability.
