Wealth Not Waste: Green Science and Engineering for Sustainable growth in Africa
The Pan Africa Chemistry Network (PACN), supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and Syngenta UK, has come together to deliver a report entitled:
‘Wealth Not Waste: Green Science and Engineering for Sustainable Growth in Africa’
This unique report summarises the conclusions and recommendations emerging from the PACN Green Chemistry Conference in 2010. It represents the views of 190 scientists and practitioners that attended the conference from 11 countries in Africa as well as from Europe, the USA and Brazil.
The basic requirements of society include:
This report discusses how science and engineering are fundamental to meeting these needs in a sustainable way.
The principles of Green Chemistry and sustainable manufacturing are shown to be crucial if Africa is to enjoy economic growth by using, and at the same time preserving, its unique resources and biological diversity.
