Green carbon for the chemical industry of the future

Green carbon for the chemical industry of the future

The Royal Society have organised a Scientific Discussion meeting which will take place 11th-12th December at The Royal Society, London. The meeting has been organised by Professor Graham Hutchings CBE FRS, Sir Richard Catlow FRS, Professor Matthew Davidson, Professor Matthew Rosseinsky FRS, and Professor Charlotte Williams OBE FRS. Our Centre will have representatives attending this discussion.


Society is facing the unavoidable challenge of providing essential chemicals and materials from sustainable resources. We need a chemical industry based on non-fossil carbon that can manufacture these products in a net-zero future. The meeting will focus on this grand challenge by bringing together scientists and engineers across disciplines to define the advances needed to tackle this crucial problem.

Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.
