Is Chemistry the Key to Sustainable Living?
23rd November 2010, 5.30pm Tuesday. The Chemistry Centre, Burlington House, London
The sustainable design of products is absolutely essential to support a population living in a world with limited resources. This has been identified as one of the top challenges for the chemical sciences through the RSC's roadmap, Chemistry for Tomorrow's World.
Please join us for a frank and informed discussion as part of the next event in our Policy Lecture Series.
Is Chemistry the Key to Sustainable Living? is a lecture that will be delivered by Dr Mike Pitts. It will provide an insight into the role of the chemical sciences in implementing sustainable product design; it will also provide a forum to discuss the science policy issues which surround this.
Dr Mike Pitts is the Manager of Sustainable Technologies Priority at the Chemistry Innovation Knowledge Transfer Network. His work covers areas including life-cycle analysis and communication, alternative feedstocks and low-carbon technologies. The lecture will be chaired by Dr Richard Miller (Head of Sustainability, Technology Strategy Board).
Spaces are limited and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. For further details and to register please click here.
