Minimising waste in chemical formulation (Hosted by GAMBICA)


Jacqueline BalianHead of Laboratories Sector - GAMBICA

Time & Location

Thursday: 14.30 to 15.30, Stage 4

About this session

In this session, expert members of GAMBICA, the trade association for lab equipment, test and measurement suppliers, will offer step by step advice on how to drive waste minimisation in key areas that matter to the chemical industry; avoiding incomplete chemistry, minimising use of energy and raw materials and reducing end of pipe waste and re-work. Drawing on expertise from extensive collaborations with leading chemists and organisations, the speakers will explain how they are responding to the chemical industry’s drive to transform research and development by focusing on improving quality, minimising waste and reducing cost. They will each present on particular aspects of waste minimisation for 10 minutes then will open up to a debate on the barriers to waste minimisation and how they can be overcome and on what is coming down the line in terms of technical developments and customer requirements.
