3rd GREENERING International Conference


GREENERING International Conference is an event initiated within the Green Chemical Engineering Network towards upscaling sustainable processes (CA18224) – the GREENERING Action, funded by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) from Brussels, Belgium. The objective of the GREENERING COST Action was to promote and boost the industrial application of green chemistry and sustainable technologies. The GREENERING International Conference was established in line with those objectives, aiming to gather academics, researchers, and companies in an international forum to promote the application of green chemistry and sustainable technologies in industries, focusing on environmental, innovation, economic, and policy aspects.
The Greenering International Conference covered up to now a wide range of topics, including: Alternative solvents; Green extraction; Waste treatment and valorisation; Bioactive compounds fractionating and formulation using green techniques; Biofuels and Bioenergy; CO2 capture and Utilization; Green reactions and Catalysis; Biopolymers and advanced biomaterials; Green processes scale-up and industrial applications; Green Policy and Innovations.
The 1st GREENERING International Conference was a two-day event held in February 2021, in Costa da Caparica, Portugal, hosted by DES Solutio, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal. This two-day event gathered 131 participants from 27 different countries. 35 lectures were given, and 96 posters were presented. The 2nd GREENERING International Conference was a three-day event, organized in March 2023. The event was hosted by the Bioeconomy Institute – BioEcoUVa, from the University of Valladolid in Spain. It gathered 148 participants from 26 countries. 68 speakers gave their talks, while 78 works were presented in poster form.
The 3rd GREENERING International Conference, as a 3-day event, will be organized from 12th to 14th February 2025, at the Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi, UAE. We warmly welcome all of you to join us in this international forum devoted to green technologies and processes!

Let us build new scientific bridges for a greener, cleaner, and more sustainable future!
