Since its foundation in the year 2002, the "Green Solvents" biennial conference series has been established as a unique platform for the discussion of scientific progress and industrial implementation of advanced fluids in chemical synthesis and processes. The approaches discussed comprise aqueous phases, ionic liquids, supercritical fluids, green organic solvents, and liquid polymers, including also phase-separable reagents and solvent-free processes.
Some 150-200 scientists and engineers from academia and industry discuss these approaches in a thematically structured programme with no parallel sessions allowing for the comparison of different strategies and cross-fertilization between complementary methodologies.
The lecture programme consists of a special Sunday evening lecture, keynote lectures, invited lectures and submitted oral presentations. The poster session plays a key role for the discussion of cutting edge results in the field. Special low rates and support for young scientists and PhD students facilitates their active participation.
The 2016 edition of the "Green Solvents Conference" will be held in the beautiful city of Kiel. Gigantic ferries to Scandinavia, cruise liners from all over the world, shopping malls, Baltic beaches and the cultural scene make the life worth living in the city centre of Kiel.
Through its unique location at Kiel Firth, the capital of Schleswig-Holstein is on the waterfront like no other Baltic metropolis. Therefore it is called KIEL.SAILING CITY.
We look forward to seeing you in Kiel in 2016!
