ACS GCI Chemical Manufacturer's Roundtable

The ACS GCI Chemical Manufacturer's Roundtable brings together industry leaders to identify best practices for the implementation of green chemistry and engineering in the chemical manufacturing industry. Launched in June 2010 as a partnership between ACS Green Chemistry Institute® and the chemical manufacturing industry, the Roundtable focuses on strategic areas where improving efficiency can benefit the diverse industry stakeholders.

Mission

To provide leadership and education in the interpretation and implementation of green chemistry and green engineering principles as applied in the chemical manufacturing industry as well as providing a consistent source of credible, scientifically sound information on the application of the principles to chemical manufacturing industry stakeholders to influence policy, standard setting organizations, and third parties directly relevant to the chemical manufacturing industry.

Learn about the Roundtable's Strategic Priorities

Member companies who are part of the ACS GCI Chemical Manufacturer’s Roundtable are dedicated to the implementation of green chemistry and engineering into the manufacturing of chemicals. Member companies face a diversity of challenges and priorities, yet by identifying common processes, the Roundtable can drive sustainability improvements that will have a broad impact on the industry. For example, through the lens of green chemistry and engineering, improvements can be made in the efficiency of energy-intensive distillation processes which are a staple of most chemical manufacturers.

The ACS GCI Chemical Manufacturer’s Roundtable invites all corporations producing basic chemicals or manufacturing products by predominantly chemical processes to consider joining. Companies are encouraged to join if they are committed to improving the process of chemical manufacturing through the application of green chemistry and engineering.
