WS6 – Green technologies and solvents: the cosmetic challenge
Where: Mico, Blue Room 3 - When: Sept, 30th 14.00/16.00
An in-depth workshop consisting of fronctal lectures to explore the wide and prominent topic of green chemistry, particularly in the cosmetic field and in the cosmetic application.

Content and Objectives:
- Deepening of the key concepts of green chemistry and their application in green extraction of natural substances.
- Examining the use of alternative solvents and how to follow the “six principles of Green Extraction of Natural Products”.
- Exploring how cosmetic industry can take advantage from non-conventional techniques and process intensification both in term of ingredient quality and production costs.

Worth for: R&D technicians, Cosmetologists, Chemists.


F. Chemat -
Professor of Chemistry at Avignon University
Farid Chemat was born in Blida, Algeria. He received his PhD degree (1994) in process engineering from the Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse-France. After periods of postdoctoral research work, he moved to the University of La Réunion (France DOM) as assistant professor and since 2006 holds the position of Professor at the University of Avignon (France).
