On November 2 (2016) Dr Oliver Hutt presented our work at the United Nations’ Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD) Seventh Regional 3R Forum in Asia and the Pacific. particularly noting the economic opportunities accessible through flow chemistry by improving resource efficiency and reducing waste.
The paper seeks to highlight the importance of academic, governmental and industry collaboration to implement sustainable chemical manufacturing practices.
Flow chemistry is presented as a potential technological solution to addressing many of Sustainable Development Goals by dramatically improving a range of processing parameters, including:
Two cases from the fine chemical manufacturing industry are presented in detail, which demonstrate these benefits.
