Sustainability is becoming an important aspect of chemical processing and manufacture. Although the specific meaning of sustainability can vary depending on context, a rather broad definition is given by Brundtland (1987); "Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations to meet their own needs". Our goal with this session is to solicit presentations that combine adsorption-based phenomenon with sustainability concepts. Example topics, among many others, include new or improved processes with a) lower levels of byproducts/pollution (e.g., green technologies), b) lower natural resource demands (energy, materials, and capital), c) recycled feed stocks, etc... Processes dealing with global, multi-generational issues are particularly desired (e.g., greenhouse gas emissions and global warming, water availability).
