Are you interested in learning how to promote and enable a green and sustainable chemical industry that is safe for people and the environment?
Welcome to the Mistra SafeChem final webinar on June 3. Here you find the full agenda for this intresting day.

The Mistra SafeChem programme has been working for over four years and is now ready to present its findings, insights, and highlights. The overarching aim is to reduce exposure to hazardous substances for both humans and the environment and to promote the development of a safe, sustainable, and green chemical industry.

Our final webinar will summarise four years of research for greener chemistry in one day – this will be interesting!
Listen throughout the day or check off the programme items that interest you.
