Industrial Roundtables

ACS Green Chemistry Institute convenes companies from across the world to form industrial roundtables to focus on the science of sustainable and green chemistry and its implementation. The Roundtables meet regularly to set and work on their objectives. In this collaborative forum, companies can benchmark progress, develop uniform tools, identify key research areas, award funding, give input to policy-setting organizations, and author papers on projects and initiatives, among other projects.
