Royal Society of Chemistry, Chemistry Week 2019: Saving Precious Elements

20 November 2019 18:30-20:30, London, United Kingdom

Join us during the International Year of the Periodic Table to highlight how precious elements are being lost to landfill or hoarded in old tech devices.

Some elements, such as gallium and indium, have less than 100 years’ supply if we carry on using them at the rate that we currently do, so hear about the Royal Society of Chemistry's sustainability campaign to encourage government, retailers, consumers and manufacturers to play their part in safeguarding these elements for future generations.
