The ACS Green Chemistry Institute (GCI) and the pharmaceutical industry are collaborating to advance and facilitate the implementation of research, development, and commercialisation of greener chemistries for a more sustainable pharma industr

To catalyse tangible green and sustainable chemistry and engineering innovation, the member companies of the ACS Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Roundtable (ACS GCIPR) have identified, designed, and deeply examined a unique toolbox that includes an array of commonly agreed-upon metrics and tools, widely used by the industry while designing their processes.


This session covers the following:


• Developing effective accessible tools, including Reagent Guides, an interactive solvent selection tool, a calculator for comparing the environmental impact of analytical methods.
• Assessing current benchmarks of 
pharmaceutical processes as well as a preview of new tools currently in development.
