This conference will bring together two groups of people/organizations: (1) Those developing prototypes of novel technologies and (2) those seeking to convert prototypes to commercial success.

The historical disconnect between these two groups has led to a fairly low rate of success for technologies to ultimately hit the market. Both groups will be pulled together under the large umbrella of Sustainability and green chemistry at this conference. It is hoped that product needs will be articulated while technology opportunities are described leading to successful long lasting collaborations.
