Track 1: Biomass and its Conversion

Biomass is fuel that is developed from organic materials, a renewable and sustainable source of energy used to create electricity or different forms of power. Biomass is a renewable source of fuel to produce energy since waste residues will always be – in terms of mill residuals, forest resources and scrap wood; and forests will always have trees, and we will always have crops and the residual biological material from those crops. Biomass offers noteworthy environmental and consumer benefits, protecting air quality, and contributing the most dependable renewable energy source. Biomass energy has the potential to moderate greenhouse warming through the provision of energy from CO2-neutral feed stocks. Biomass does not add carbon dioxide to the atmosphere as it absorbs the same quantity of carbon in growing as it releases when it is consumed as a fuel. Biomass is a significant source of energy and the most important fuel worldwide after coal, oil and natural gas. Biomass conversion is mainly of two types – thermal related process and biological related process. Biomass could become an important part of future sustainable energy supplies. Many conversion types take into account the different feedstock going in due to the wide range of feedstock and the end product – heat, power, fuel, chemicals, and materials. Conversion technologies include biochemical conversion, Thermochemical conversion, pyrolysis, thermal degradation, anaerobic digestion, trans-esterification. Researchers, companies and the government are finding ways to convert biomass in a cost effective and efficient process.

Track 2: Cleaner production and Green Nanotechnologies

Green nanotechnology is the study of nanotechnology that can benefit the environment, such as by using less energy during the manufacturing process, the ability to recycle products after use, and using eco-friendly materials. Green nanotechnologies could be expected to assist in cleaning water via novel filtration techniques and the ability to decontaminate dirty water; solving efficiency disputes so as to increase the use of renewable energy; for waste management and environmental remediation. Green nanotechnology has its applications in green manufacturing, water treatment, renewable energy, environmental remediation and waste management. Green nanotechnology applications involves a clean production process, such as synthesizing nanoparticles with sunlight, the recycling of industrial waste products into nanomaterials, such as turning diesel soot into carbon nanotubes. Nanomaterials production in the areas of solar cells, biofuels and fuel cells. Cleaner Production is considered as a tool to reach sustainable development through the continuous application of an integrated preventative environmental strategy to processes, products and services so as to reduce risks to humans and the environment. Nanotechnologies will have a major impact on developing 'green' and 'clean' technologies with substantial environmental benefits.

Track 3: Environmental Chemistry and Pollution Control

Environmental chemistry is a branch of chemistry, comprising aspects related to organic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry and inorganic chemistry, as well as more diverse areas, such as public health, biology, biochemistry, toxicology, and epidemiology. Environmental chemistry is the study of chemical processes occurring in the environment which are impacted by mankind's activities and the impacts may be felt through the presence of air pollutants or toxic substances from a chemical waste site, or through depletion of stratospheric ozone which may affect global warming. The present environmental problems lead to the remediation of environmental media, and to new, low energy, low emission, and sustainable processes. Environmental chemistry describes regarding the pollution of air, water, food and living organisms by toxic metals, soils, fossil fuels, pesticides and organic pollutants. Green chemistry highlights novel chemical reactions which are environmentally friendly.

Track 4: Green Analytical Techniques

Green analytical chemistry is a part of the sustainable development idea. Green analytical chemistry emphasis on environmentally friendly sample preparation techniques. Miniaturisation of analytical devices and shortening the time elapsing between performance analysis and reliable analytical results are important aspects of green analytical chemistry. Solvent less extraction techniques, the application of alternate solvents and assisted extractions are considered as main approaches complying with green analytical chemistry principles. Green analytical chemistry is a key part of green chemistry and an important trend in analytical chemistry in modern society. Green analytical chemistry is systematically discussed and then defined with seven principles. Important aspects of green analytical chemistry are discussed in detail with regard to the whole analytical process; i.e., from sample collection, sample preparation, to sample analysis, and some other related issues such as process analysis. Now a day, green analytical chemistry has driven attention to serve the sustainable development of the modern society. Green bioanalytical techniques aims to minimize or eliminate the hazardous waste associated with conventional bioanalytical methods. An efficient approach towards bioanalytical method development has a huge contribution towards the green analysis. The selection of organic constituents of the mobile phase, choice of type of sample extraction process, adoption of suitable separation procedure controls the green chemistry approach of the bioanalytical method. Supercritical fluid chromatography is one of the best techniques for green bioanalytical methods.

Track 5: Green Chemistry and Technology

The idea of green chemistry is study of new idea which developed in the business and regulatory society as a natural evolution of pollution preventive actions. In our exertions to improve crop protection, medicines, and commercial products where we are causing unplanned harm to our planet and humans. Green chemistry takes a stride further and builds new concepts for chemistry and engineering to design chemicals, chemical processes and products in a way that circumvents the production of toxic substances and waste generation. New catalytic reaction procedures continue to develop to advance the objectives of Green Chemistry, while methods such as photochemistry, microwave and ultrasonic synthesis has been broadly used, leading to remarkable results. Green Chemistry targets to eliminate generation of hazards at their design stage itself. Green chemistry decreases the pollution at its source by eliminating or lessening the risks of chemical feedstock’s, solvents, reagents, and products. Green chemistry is the design of processes and chemical products that lessening or reduces the generation of hazardous substances.

Track 6: Green Chemical Reactions

Reactions play the most major role in synthesis. Green Chemistry appeals for the development of new chemical reactivity’s and reaction conditions that can potentially provide benefits for chemical syntheses in empathies of resource and energy efficiency, operational ease, product selectivity, and health and environmental safety. Some of green reaction methods include atom economy where the reaction seeks to maximize the incorporation of the starting materials into the final product of any given reaction; direct conversion of C–H bonds where transformation of the C–H bonds of organic molecules into desired structures without extra chemical conversions represents another class of major desirable reactions; synthesis without protections where organic synthesis extensively utilizes protection–deprotection of functional groups, which increases the number of steps in synthesizing the desired compounds but green chemistry is needed to perform organic synthesis without protection and deprotection; flow reactors where importance to greener syntheses is the development of tandem and cascade reaction processes that incorporate as many reactions as possible to give the final product in single operation. In biocatalysis where the potential effectiveness of various catalysts such as enzymes, whole cells, and catalytic antibodies for organic synthesis has become more recognized.

Track 7: Green Catalysis and Biocatalysis

The key objective of green chemistry is waste minimization. A sustainable process is the one that optimizes the use of resources, while still leaving sufficient resources for future generations. Catalysis is an important tool in both the cases. Catalysis is the key to sustainability. A catalyst is a substance that facilitates a chemical reaction. A catalyst is something that makes a reaction goes faster, without being consumed in the process. Catalysis is divided into three categories: homogeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, and biocatalysis. Although the catalysts and the process conditions in every category can be different but the principles of catalysis are the same. Biocatalysis is a special case, somewhere between homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis. In most of the cases, the biocatalyst is an enzyme – a complex protein that catalyzes the reactions in living cells. Green Catalysis is a part of green chemistry but the most important and one of the urgently needed challenges facing engineers now is the design and use of environmentally benign catalysts.

Track 8: Green Chemical Engineering

The chemical industry and other related industries supply us with a huge variety of essential products to everyday living. However, the chemical industries have the potential to extremely damage our environment. In the last span of 10 years, the scientific community has witnessed a growing interest in environmental issues and the value for environmentally friendly energy generation and chemical processes. The combination of chemical engineering tools with the new research findings of green chemists, biologists, and environmental scientists has allowed for designing new processes for the manufacture of chemicals, fuels, and products with a reduced environmental footprint. The developed environmentally benign alternate technologies have been proven to be economically superior and function as well as or better than more toxic traditional options. The design and efficient use of environmentally benign chemical processes, including the development of processes that use clean solvents and renewable resources, biocatalysis, alternative reactors, and innovative environmental technologies for water treatment and pollution control.

Track 9: Green Energy & Renewable Resources

Green energy, at times called renewable or sustainable energy comes from natural sources like wind, water, and sunlight. It is more environmentally friendly than other types of energy and doesn’t contribute to climate change or global warming. Green energy is generally defined as the energy that comes from natural sources such as sunlight, rain, plants, wind, waves, algae and geothermal heat. These energy resources are renewable in nature. Renewable energy sources have lesser impact on the environment which produces pollutants such as greenhouse gases as by-product, causative to climate change. Improvements in renewable energy technologies have lowered the cost of solar panels, wind turbines and other sources of green energy. Research into renewable, non-polluting energy sources is progressing at such a fast pace. The most common types of green energy include solar power, wind power, wind power, geothermal energy, biomass, and biofuels.

Track 10: Green Engineering and Sustainable Designing

Green engineering approaches the design, commercialization of products and the use of processes and products in a manner that concurrently reduces the amount of pollution that is generated by a source, reduces exposures to potential hazards, and promotes sustainability as well as protecting human health without effecting the economic viability and efficiency. Fundamental Principles of green engineering comprises engineering processes and products use systems analysis, and assimilate environmental impact assessment tools; minimising the depletion of natural resources; assure that all energy and material inputs and outputs are safe and compassionate as much as possible; Create solutions further than current technologies to improve, innovate, and invent to achieve sustainability.

Track 11: Green Technologies in food production & food processing

Food is a vital component of life and human survival. Increasing population growth with the demands resulting from industrialization has made the need for sustainable food production and processing technologies equally more important. Green technology is defined as application of environmental science, green chemistry, environmental monitoring and electronic devices to monitor, model and save the natural environment and resources, and to reduce the negative effects of human involvement.  Key drivers of green technologies in food production & food processing of the evolution in the food supply chain includes in-depth description of food production, and processing use of life cycle assessment tool; approaches to improve food production practices; sustainable food processing approaches; emerging analytical techniques for sustainable research and development; challenges associated with the use of agricultural resources to grow biofuels and bio-based products; technologies to reduce the generation of process-induced toxins; factors that influence consumer perceptions about some of the current and emerging agri-food technologies.

Green chemistry relates to the design of chemical processes and products that reduce the use or generation of substances hazardous to humans, animals, plants, and the environment. Green chemistry strives to reduce and prevent pollution at its source. Natural polymers are usually green. In the production of polymers, green principles includes a high content of raw material in the product, a clean (no-waste) production process, No use of additional substances such as organic solvents, High energy efficiency in manufacturing, Use of renewable resources and renewable energy, Absence of health and environmental hazards, High safety standards, Low carbon footprint and Controlled product lifecycles with effective waste recycling.

Track 13: Green Manufacturing and Processes

Green manufacturing is the renewal of production processes and the establishing of environmentally-friendly operations within the manufacturing field. Greening of the manufacturing process, in which workers use fewer natural resources, reduce pollution and waste, recycle and reuse materials, and moderate emissions in their processes. The term green manufacturing can be observed in two ways that is the manufacturing of green products, particularly which are used in renewable energy systems and clean technology, and the greening of manufacturing reduces pollution and waste by minimizing natural resource use, recycling and reusing what was considered waste, and reducing emissions. Applications of green manufacturing includes lean manufacturing where attention paid to waste generated along the way and energy reduction in streamlined logistics; Materials reuse, recycling; Green plastics which are biodegradable; Product design; solvent less technologies; electronics; Automobile design and manufacture.

Track 14: Green Materials

Green materials are materials that are renewable in nature. Materials such as clay, sand and stone are green materials. Plant materials like grasses, straw, wood and bamboo are also green materials. Plant materials that grow quickly are renewable in nature. Reclaimed materials are materials that can be reused in their existing form for new resolutions. Reclaimed materials are green that means they can be re-purposed and reused. Recyclable materials are materials that can change from being waste material to being reused through reprocessing or re-purposing. Green materials are defined as materials which are non-toxic, improve occupancy health, lower cost, and conserve energy and water use and waste products. Non-toxic materials are those that do not cause harm to the environment. Green materials are also materials that have low embedded energy in their harvesting or collection, production, transportation and use.

Track 15: Green Solvents

Solvents are supporting materials used in chemical synthesis. They are not an important part of the compounds undergoing reaction, yet they play an essential role in chemical production and synthesis. The invention of various interesting organic solvents has resulted in some notable advances in chemistry, the relic of such solvents has led to various environmental and health concerns. As part of Green Chemistry, various cleaner solvents have been evaluated as alternates. The growth of Green Chemistry redefines the role of a solvent as ideal solvent facilitates the mass transfer but does not dissolve. Additionally, a desirable green solvent should be natural, nontoxic, cheap, and readily available. Natural green solvents include water and carbon dioxide. Moreover to the two “natural green solvents”, various non-natural ones have also been intensively studied as green alternatives. The most widely studied ones are ionic liquids and another innovative discovery is the recently developed “switchable solvents”. Beside these solvents, other synthetic solvents such as fluorous and property-changing soluble polymer systems have been evaluated as potential green alternatives.

Track 16: Industrial Applications of Green Chemistry

Track 17:  Life Cycle Assessment and Environmental Sustainability

Green Chemistry offers an apt structure for achieving sustainability through its 12 principles proposed by Anastas and Warner, but it also poses significant barriers of which major one is the lack of evidence of good environmental performance of proposed green chemical processes. This is the point where the thesis requires a need for Green Chemistry to incorporate quantitative tools to evaluate the greenness of new chemical processes, a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for both environmental and economic issues. LCA will be evaluated in dealing with Advanced Oxidation Processes for wastewater treatment. LCA as quantitative tool in the framework of Green Chemistry and pollution prevention, thus serving as a tool to assess the sustainability of new products, processes and technologies.  LCA is an environmental management tool which identifies all resources used and wastes generated to all environmental compartments (air, water and soil) over the whole life cycle of a specific good or service. The LCA methodology comprises of four steps: goal and scope definition, inventory analysis, impact assessment and interpretation.

Track 18: Novel Activation Methods

Some Non-thermal Activation methods such as ultrasound, biotransformation, microwaves, or photocatalysis are a part of the green practices used for the creation of high added value molecules. Microwave-assisted heating under controlled conditions is valuable technology where the organic synthesis on solid phase. Sonochemistry is the application of ultrasound to chemical processes and reactions. Biotransformation is a favoured method for the control of the selectivity and is extensively used in green chemistry. This methodology adds to the development of chiral chemistry in aqueous medium. The activation by photocatalysis under visible light is another method used in chemistry. In recent years, asymmetric organocatalysis has been broadly studied as a corresponding technique of organometallic catalysis. This new method is very striking because it by-passes the use of heavy metals.

Flow chemistry defines a general vary of chemical processes that occur in a very continuous flowing stream, conventionally happening in a reactor zone. The flow chemistry depends on the concept of pumping reagents using various reactors types to perform specific reactions. A rise in the greenness and sustainability of chemical processes can be realized by using continuous-flow reactors. The process can lead to achieving reactions conditions which lead to decrease in reaction time and waste generation, avoiding ultralow temperature conditions, increasing the overall atom economy, broadening the safety window and decreasing the overall energy consumption to name a few. Results show that continuous-flow technology can be developed to meet the requirements of industry and help in contributing to green and sustainable chemical production processes. For efficient use of flow technology, there are few challenges which need to be addressed such as understanding the transformation of batch processes to those of flow, understanding reaction kinetics within these reactors and implementation of scale-up procedures. In addition to that, the increase in demand for continuous flow technology and their promising results may help in the substantial development of eco-friendly and greener organic transformations.
