American Chemical Society widmet sich nachwachsenden Rohstoffen

Die American Chemical Society ACS hat anlässlich des 224th ACS National Meeting and Exposition in Boston, MA, USA (August 18-22, 2002) das erste Mal mit einem eigenen Vortragsblock die nachwachsenden Rohstoffe gewürdigt. In der Division of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry / Session “Industrial Bio-Based Technology” stellten Referenten aus den USA, Kanada und Europa ihre Arbeiten vor.
