  • Greening Chemistry - MEGREC Objectives and Activities [Pietro Tundo, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Italy]

    1. 1. Greening ChemistryThe Mediterranean Green Chemistry Network, MEGREC Pietro Tundo Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Italy
    2. 2. Mediterranean Basin UNITWIN Network for Green Chemistry MEGREC UNITWIN Network 731 University Twinning and Networking 70 UNITWIN Networks
    3. 3. List of UNESCO Chairs and UNITWIN Networks in the field of Chemistry:• Angola UNESCO Chair in Chemical and Environmental Engineering (2) - Agostinho Neto University, within the framework of the Santander Group - established in 1994.• ChinaUNESCO/SHELL Chair in Coal Gasification (620) - Institute of Coal Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Taiyuan, Sahanxi - established in 2003.• FranceUNESCO Chair in Applied Membrane Sciences for Environment (660)- Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Montpellier, Institut Européen des Membranes, Montpellier - established in 2004.• Germany UNESCO Chair in Macromolecular Characterization (645) - University of Technology and German Institute for Polymers, Darmstadt - established in 2004.• ItalyMediterranean Basin UNITWIN Network for Green Chemistry (MEGREC UNITWIN Network) (731), Ca’ Foscari, Venice - established in 2006.• UzbekistanUNESCO Chair in Green Chemistry (627) - Uzbekistan National University - established in 2003.
    4. 4. Mediterranean Basin UNITWIN Network for Green Chemistry MEGREC UNITWIN Network 731Established in 2006. Host Institution, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice
    5. 5. Mediterranean Basin UNITWIN Network for Green Chemistry MEGREC Host Institution, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice• ALGERIA - Université Mentouri-Costantine and Université Djillali Liabes• EGYPT - Suez Canal University, Ismailia• GREECE - National and Kapodistrian University of Athens• ITALY - Università Ca Foscari Venezia• MOROCCO - Université Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah de Fez• SERBIA - Belgrade University• SPAIN - Universidad De Las Palmas de Gran Canaria• TUNISIA - Universitè de Gabès
    6. 6. Mediterranean Basin UNITWIN Network for Green Chemistry MEGREC Objectives-To increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the research process,teaching and training activities in green chemistry-To promote technology transfer and capacity building-To promote awareness of green chemistry and raise awareness of policy-makers through presentation of local case studies and development ofappropriate training material-To promote establishment of new centres of excellence and laboratories ingreen chemistry-To elaborate guidelines for green chemistry development in allMediterranean countries- To promote the application of green chemistry principles
    7. 7. New Paradigma From the study and mitigation of undesired effects, to new green technologiesFrom environmental protection, life cycleanalysis, clean energy,climate change study, toinherently safe processes and products
    8. 8. New Paradigma for Cooperation• Clean processes and products: impact on Environment (air, ozone layer, climate change,…) and on Human Health (Dioxines, POPs, ...)• Intrinsically safe products: no POPs, dioxins, and easily recyclabe materials.
    9. 9. Opportunities for CooperationTechnology transfer on Clean Productionsand Energy generation (industrial processes)Inherently safe products (dioxin and POPsfree, easily recyclable materials,decontamination)
    10. 10. Nowadays the globalization pushes the chemistrycommunity to adopt ethical issues. In this prospectGreen Chemistry can achieve the approval of thesociety by teaching students to be confident inscience and by convincing people that it is possibleto achieve an inherently safe technologicaldevelopment.In order to achieve these objectives it is importantthat education and fundamental research are strictlyconnected, so that democracy and development canalso grow and progress side by side.
    11. 11. Green Chemistry or Sustainable Chemistry?• GREEN CHEMISTRY: focus on new reaction pathways. It is innovation at molecular level.• SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY: focus on designing alternatives pathways for industrial products and processes. It meets social needs and economical feasibility.
