A Sustainable Global Society
How Can Materials Chemistry Help?
A white paper from the Chemical Sciences and Society Summit (CS3) 2010, which took place in London, September 2010
- Professor Ryoji Noyori, 2001 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry
A Sustainable Global Society outlines five key areas in which materials chemists, through collaboration with other scientists, industry and policy makers, can seize exciting opportunities to address global challenges.
Materials chemistry will underpin many of the required solutions to some of the most important energy and environmental problems in today's society.
Materials chemistry solutions to challenges of energy conversion and storage
Materials chemists can develop ways to use carbon dioxide as a value product rather than waste
Materials chemistry can help to reduce, replace and recycle the use of scarce natural resources.
Materials chemists can reduce our dependency on fossil fuels and feedstocks
Materials chemists can design processes that are more efficient with low environmental impact
The annual CS3 summit brings together the best minds in chemical research from around the world
