REGIONAL WORKSHOP ON CHEMISTRY FOR SAFETY, SECURITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION FOR GRULAC MEMBER STATES, BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA, 11 AND 12 DECEMBER 2017

Published: 2017-10-11

Jointly IFS and OPCW since 1998, have sought to provide support to a number of research projects through a long-term cooperation agreement. Towards the same efforts of collaboration, IFS, and OPCW, have also organized joint regional workshops to summarise the success of the funded research and to advance knowledge transfer and cooperation in specific fields of chemistry.

The proposed theme/focus of the 2017 workshop will be on 'Developments in chemistry for safety, security and environmental protection' and would target the GRULAC Member States, where such topics were highly present among the OPCW funded research projects.

In line with the above, the main thematic topics of the workshop will comprise the following: 

  1. green and sustainable chemistry techniques for safety and security at chemical sites;

  2. renewable bio-based resources for chemicals production (biofuels and biorefineries); and

  3. remediation and clean-up of polluted sites.

The workshop is intended to bring together representatives and experts from scientific communities, including the former grantees of the OPCW Research Projects Support Programme who performed research on the topics mentioned above, and representatives from chemical industry, international organizations, governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
