Ladies and gentlemen, welcome on board to Green Chemistry 2023
It is an honor and a pleasure to give this short address to highlight how Green Chemistry represents a very promising niche in the development of novel economic and environmentally friendly industrial processes. Without a doubt, severe climate changes have occurred worldwide due to the accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution. Therefore, the concept of a carbon-neutral society by 2050 is evidently overdue. Although renewable energy sources, including solar radiation, wind power, and nuclear power, can result in reduction in CO2 emissions, these renewable sources do not eliminate accumulated CO2. In contrast, plants naturally capture accumulated CO2 in the atmosphere without generating environmental concerns. Therefore, Green Chemistry 2023 represents an exciting opportunity to highlighting different competencies and to establish contacts focused on forging new collaborations in research. Once again, it is my pleasure to welcome you. Enjoy the meeting!
