Sorry for any cross-posting, but I suspect that there are a lot of P2TECHies who might enjoy this conference.
The American Institute of Chemical Engineers will be hosting a Topical Conference on "Sustaining the Manufacturing Base" as part of the Spring National Meeting, April 10-14, 2005 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, GA. The Conference is cosponsored by the AIChE Sustainability and Engineering Forum (SEF), the AIChE Institute for Sustainability (IfS) and the ACS Green Chemistry Institute.
Sustainable Engineering applies chemistry and chemical engineering principles and process synthesis skills to developing sustainable methods, designs, and products. Green chemical engineering endeavors to prevent pollution and provide inherently safe products and processes. This Topical Conference, "Sustainability and Green Engineering: Coming of Age," will emphasize:
In addition to the conference sessions, a separate series of Sustainability Workshops will be conducted at a cost of $100 per workshop. These workshops are open to the public and do not require registration for the AIChE meeting itself. The workshop topics include:
