The course will give an  introduction to green and sustainable chemistry. This will be done by lectures and mandatory student paper presentation. Topics will include:

  • Atom economy
  • Wastemanagement and Prevention
  • Measuring and Controlling Environmental Performance
  • Green catalysis and green solvents
  • Renewable Resources
  • Emerging Greener Technologies and Alternative Energy Sources
  • Designing Greener Processes
Learning outcome
