Catalysts can be divided into two main types - heterogeneous and homogeneous. In a heterogeneous reaction, the catalyst is in a different phase from the reactants. In a homogeneous reaction, the catalyst is in the same phase as the reactants.

You might wonder why phase differs from the term physical state (solid, liquid or gas). It includes solids, liquids and gases, but is actually a bit more general. It can also apply to two liquids (oil and water, for example) which don't dissolve in each other. You could see the boundary between the two liquids. The role of catalysis in Catalytic oxidation and Reduction and for the sustainable products of Bio-Fuels and the role of a catalyst is to provide a shorter route for the reaction to occur, hence it increases the rate of the reaction as the catalyst provides a route that requires a low activation energy. Thus, the rate of the reaction is increased. Included with catalysis of solid acids and basesCatalytic Reduction and Catalytic Oxidation, the Green Catalytic transformation can be done. This Session includes Heterogeneous catalysis, Homogeneous catalysis, The Role of catalysis, Chemical Engineering, Catalysis of solid acids and Bases, Sustainable Catalysts, Catalytic Oxidation and Reduction, Risky Reagents, Green Catalytic transformation.

The global catalyst market is expected to reach USD 34.3 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The accelerating use of catalysts for reducing the cost of manufacturing chemicals, petrochemicals and polymers are expected to remain a favorable factor.

The most Important issue of the green technology this includes the Eco Design in Industry, new means of generating energy, Use of waste materials, Green Fertilizers waste-to-green Product Conversion and energy efficiency. The search for the alternative fuel has getting queries in the field to Increase the energy efficiency. Green engineering approaches the design of products and processes by applying financially and technologically feasible processes and products in a manner that simultaneously decreases the amount of pollution that is generated by a source, minimizes exposures to potential hazards (including reducing toxicity and improved uses of matter and energy throughout the life cycle of the product and processes). In so doing, the overall health and ecological stress and risk are reduced. As such, green engineering is not actually an engineering discipline in itself, but an overarching engineering framework for all design disciplines. Minimise the waste and then reuse or recycle as much of it as possible. Minimise energy and water usage in our buildings, vehicles and processes in order to conserve supplies, and minimise the consumption of natural resources, especially where they are non-renewable. Operate and maintain company vehicles (where appropriate) with due regard to environmental issues as far as reasonably practical and encourage the use of alternative means of transport and car sharing as appropriate. Apply the principles of continuous improvement in respect of air, water, noise and light pollution from our premises and reduce any impacts from our operations on the environment and local community.

Nanotechnology involves the manipulation of materials at the scale of the nanometre, one billionth of a meter. Some scientists believe that mastery of this subject is forthcoming that will transform the way that everything in the world is manufactured. "Green nanotechnology" is the application of green chemistry and green engineering principles to this field. Green nanotechnology has been described as the development of clean technologies, "to minimize potential environmental and human health risks associated with the manufacture and use of nanotechnology products, and to encourage replacement of existing products with new nano-products that are more environmentally friendly throughout their lifecycle. Research is underway to use nanomaterials for purposes including more efficient solar cells, practical fuel cells, and environmentally friendly batteries. The most advanced nanotechnology projects related to energy are: storage, conversion, manufacturing improvements by reducing materials and process rates, energy saving (by better thermal insulation for example), and enhanced renewable energy sources.

In this session the trends in Bioresorces and technology will be disscussed. An isolated, solvent-extracted lignin from candlenut (Aleurites moluccana) biomass was subjected to catalytic depolymerization in the presence of supercritical CH3OH (Methanol or wood alcohol), using a range of porous metal oxides derived from hydrotalcite-like precursors. The most potent catalysts in terms of lignin conversion to methanol-soluble products, without char formation, were based on copper in combination with other dopants based on relatively earth-abundant metals. Nearly complete conversion of lignin to bio-oil composed of monomers and low-mass oligomers with high aromatic content was obtained in 6 h at 309 °C using a catalyst based on a Cu- and La-doped hydrotalcite-like precursor. Product mixtures were characterized by NMR spectroscopy, gel permeation chromatography, and GC–MS.

 Sustainable and Green Chemistry in very simple terms is just a different way of thinking about how chemistry and chemical engineering can be done. Over the years different principles have been proposed that can be used when thinking about the design, development and implementation of chemical products and processes. These principles enable scientists and engineers to protect and benefit the economy, people and the planet by finding creative and innovative ways to reduce waste, conserve energy, and discover replacements for hazardous substances.

Green chemistry can also be defined through the use of metrics. While a unified set of metrics has not been established, many ways to quantify greener processes and products have been proposed. These metrics include ones for mass, energy, hazardous substance reduction or elimination, and life cycle environmental impacts.

For carrying out reactions it is necessary that the starting materials, solvents and catalysts should be carefully chosen. For example; use of benzene as a solvent must be avoided at any cost since it is carcinogenic in nature.

Green Chemistry is the utilization of a set of principles that reduces or eliminates the use or generation of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture and applications of chemical products”.

Environmental engineering is something that you can get a degree in these days, but the field is one that existed long before it had a name, begun at the dawn of civilization when we started modifying our environment to meet our needs. It involves applying science and engineering practices to how we utilize and impact our natural resources. Modern environmental engineers work on solutions to issues like pollution reduction and cleanup, energy consumption and emissions, land erosion, water treatment and waste management in an effort to properly manage and maintain the quality of our soil, water and air. They strive to keep everyone healthier and happier by helping us live off the land more efficiently and less destructively. Environmentally Benign Catalysis: Over the past 22 years, Catalysis by Heteropolyacids (HPAs) has received wide attention and led to new and promising developments both at academic and industrial level. In particular, heterogeneous catalysis is particularly attractive because it generally satisfies most of green chemistry’s requirements. By emphasizing the development of third generation catalysts, this volume presents trends and opportunities in academic and industrial research. Dealing with Low-pressure oxidative carbonylation of aniline, Clean combustion (catalyst challenges) and Zeolite technologies for a greener environment, this Conference appeals to postgraduates, researchers, and chemists working in the field of environmentally benign catalysts as well as catalytic processes.

The biobased industry is addressing our environmentally and socioeconomically unsustainable dependence on petroleum feedstocks in all market fronts. Researchers and firms are working quickly to create biofuels for all modes of transport, and are now beginning to highlight and even commercialize bio-derived drop-in replacements and alternatives for chemicals on which nearly every industry depends.

Biomass is the organic matter derived from plants which is generated through photosynthesis. In particular it can be referred to solar energy stored in the chemical bonds of the organic material. In addition to many benefits common to renewable energy, biomass is attractive because it is current renewable source of liquid transportation of biofuel. The Bioenergy Conference and Biofuel Conferences will optimize and enhance existing systems. However, biomass could play in responding to the nation's energy demands assuming, the economic and advances in conversion technologies will make biomass fuels and products more economically viable? The renewable energy policies in the European Union have already led to a significant progress, energy mix should further change till 2020.

Organic synthesis is a special branch of chemical synthesis and is concerned with the construction of organic compounds via organic reactions. Organic molecules often contain a higher level of complexity than purely inorganic compounds, so that the synthesis of organic compounds has developed into one of the most important branches of organic chemistry. There are several main areas of research within the general area of organic synthesis: total synthesis, semi synthesis, and methodology.

A total synthesis is the complete chemical synthesis of complex organic molecules from simple, commercially available (petrochemical) or natural precursors. Total synthesis may be accomplished either via a linear or convergent approach. In a linear synthesis often adequate for simple structures several steps are performed one after another until the molecule is complete. The chemical compounds made in each step are called synthetic intermediates. For more complex molecules, a different approach may be preferable: convergent synthesis involves the individual preparation of several "pieces" (key intermediates), which are then combined to form the desired product.

In this session the chief topics like Sustainability, industrial ecology, eco-efficiency, and green chemistry will be discussed and elaborated in an innovative manner. These are guiding the development of the next generation of materials, products, and processes. Biodegradable plastics and bio-based polymer products based on annually renewable agricultural and biomass feedstock can form the basis for a portfolio of sustainable, eco-efficient products that can compete and capture markets currently dominated by products based exclusively on petroleum feedstock. Natural/Biofiber composites (Bio-Composites) are emerging as a viable alternative to glass fiber reinforced composites especially in automotive and building product applications. The combination of bioplastics such as kenaf, hemp, flax, jute, henequen, pineapple leaf fiber, and sisal with polymer matrices from both non-renewable and renewable resources to produce composite materials that are competitive with synthetic composites requires special attention, i.e., biofiber–matrix interface and novel processing. Natural fiber–reinforced polypropylene composites have attained commercial attraction in self-propelled industries.

Green, ecological and eco-marketing are a piece of the new advertising methodologies which don't simply refocus, modify or upgrade existing promoting thinking and practice, however try to challenge those methodologies and give a generously alternate point of view. In more detail green, natural and eco-marketing have a place with the gathering of methodologies which look to address the absence of fit between promoting as it is as of now drilled and the biological and social substances of the more extensive advertising environment

Potassium isopropyl xanthate (PIX) is an ultra-efficient palladium scavenger, the latest and Efficient Method for Removal of Residual Palladium from Organic solvents.

The increasing employment of palladium-catalysed reactions in the synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) has created a pressing need for ultra-efficient palladium removal of the resulting metal contaminants.
The identification and development of Potassium Isopropyl Xanthate (PIX) as a simple, readily available and ultra-efficient palladium scavenger has the ability to remove residual palladium from the API to levels less than 1 ppm. In addition, the discovery of a synergistic effect of iodine, in combination with PIX and other palladium scavengers, to enhance palladium removal has further increased the efficiency of the palladium removal process. The PIX and I2 system has been successfully applied to the ceftolozane sulfate 2nd generation manufacturing chemistry to reduce palladium in the API resulting from a late stage palladium-catalysed coupling reaction to only 0.1 ppm. Active pharmaceutical ingredients, heavy-metal impurities, homogeneous catalysis, and purification are the important points in separation science for which the advance technologies have to be developed.

Photo-catalytic Hydrogen Production in which Nano-sized TiO2 photocatalytic water-splitting technology has great potential for low-cost, environmentally friendly solar-hydrogen production to support the future hydrogen economy. Presently, the solar-to-hydrogen energy conversion efficiency is too low for the technology to be economically sound. The main barriers are the rapid recombination of photo-generated electron/hole pairs as well as backward reaction and the poor activation of TiO2 by visible light. There are Further developments in sensitized H2 production and a vision on the Future directions and challenges in photocatalytic H2 generation are enumerated.

Photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) is the critical forcing data in ecological and agricultural fields. Remote sensing can be utilized to derive spatiotemporally continuous PAR. Empirical algorithms can be used to quickly retrieve surface PAR data sets, but their accuracy cannot be guaranteed in regions without local calibration. Physical algorithms generally incorporate all relevant physical processes and can be used globally, but their computational efficiency is often low. In this paper, an efficient algorithm is developed to calculate surface PAR by combining a clear-sky PAR model and the parameterizations for cloud transmittances.

The use of hazardous and toxic solvents in chemical laboratories and the chemical industry is considered a very important problem for the health and safety of workers and environmental pollution.  Green Chemistry aims to change the use of toxic solvents with greener alternatives, with replacement and synthetic techniques, separation and purification which do not need the use of solvents.

One  of  principles  of  Green Chemistry  is  to  promote  the  idea  of “greener” solvents (non-toxic,  benign  to  environment),  replacement  in  cases that   can   be substituted   with   safer   alternatives,   or   changes.

Green separation science & technology for separation processes are very energy intensive and in most cases, have not approached the thermodynamic limits of minimum work of separation. Historically, for liquid and condensable gas separation, multistage distillation has been the workhorse process, based on boiling point differences between the components to be separated. The energy consumption of oil refineries involved distilling crude oil into its various fractions, replacement of volatile organic compounds in industrial scale liquid/liquid or chromatographic separations and subsequent separation of thermally or catalytically cracked components in these various fractions. Moreover, many bulk organic chemicals involve distillation in their production, which adds significantly to their production CO2 footprints. Thus, avoiding distillation, making distillation more efficient, and searching for alternatives to distillation are very important aspects of implementing the third principle of green engineering. Waste management strategies for the resource smart like waste education and Regional Strategies are being developed.

People related to business administration would like to attend this meeting for their investment in the Green energy and chemistry projects in the market. Also get the chance to develop your knowledge in the green chemistry and green engineering products.

Green marketing is the showcasing of items that are dared to be naturally desirable over others. Thus, green marketing joins an expansive scope of exercises, including item adjustment, changes to the generation process, economical bundling, and in addition altering publicizing. Yet characterizing green promoting is not a straightforward assignment where a few implications cross and repudiate one another; a sample of this will be the presence of shifting social, natural and retail definitions appended to this term. Other comparable terms utilized are ecological advertising and environmental showcasing.
