What is the future for an eco-friendly chemistry? : Understanding and implementation of the Principles of the Green Chemistry and the associated metric means towards biological chemistry
The training will address the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry allowing the development of eco-friendly processes for obtaining ingredients with low environmental impact.
The strategic importance of these Principles will be presented in the context of respect for planetary boundaries, the United Nations Global Compact for the Environment and the main actions already put in place to respect our planet.
The main metrics associated with these Principles will be detailed to be able to develop new processes or improve existing processes with low environmental impact, the objective being to move closer to biological chemistry.
Finally, an update on the implementation of these Principles will be presented with academic and industrial examples and the consequences on the life cycle of products.
This seminar will be led by Michel Philippe who, after a PhD at the Institute of Chemistry of Natural Substances of Gif-sur-Yvette on new saccharide derivatives in the field of antibacterial compounds and immunostimulating agents, worked for 36 years at L’Oréal as head of sustainable innovation, then expert advisor in eco-design, green chemistry, and naturalness. As an AFNOR/ISO member, he also participated in the drafting of ISO 16128-1.2 standards on the terminology and criteria of naturalness in cosmetics involving the principles of green chemistry.
