The ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable is seeking a 1-year R&D commitment focused on reducing the process mass intensity of chromatography operations. Projects should focus on reducing water consumption, resin usage, and/or chemical usage in monoclonal antibody purification. Novel technologies to replace chromatography unit operations will be considered. Proposals are invited from public and private institutions of higher education worldwide. One grant is planned to be awarded and the total award is limited to $50,000 for a grant period of 12 months. Deadline for receipt of proposals is July 15, 2018 at 5 p.m. EDT (GMT-4).
While the ACS Petroleum Research Fund (PRF) does not have a specific category of green chemistry research, several green chemistry projects have been supported by PRF. The program welcomes applicants with high quality fundamental research in the petroleum or fossil fuels fields which may have a "green" focus.
