Welcome to the 2020 Sustainable Industrial Processing Summit and Exhibition,
a yearly event that is deeply science-focused and industrial engineering-oriented, organized since 2003 by
the not-for-profit corporation FLOGEN Stars Outreach
), which is dedicated to achieving
sustainability through science and technology. It incorporates summit plenary lectures from well-known
speakers that address the link between scientific and engineering domains in the pursuit of
sustainable development, as well as specific science
and engineering symposia that feature technical presentations with the same goals in mind.
Following the rich tradition of previous years, the summit will cover 3 sustainability pillars:
(1) Science, Technology & Industry, (2) Governance & Management and (3) Education & Civil Society.
SIPS 2020 is entirely dedicated to and bears the name of Prof. Ferid Murad, Nobel Laureate in Medicine and the SYMBOL of Unified Science
. Prof Murad is a pioneer in discovering the positive role of Nitric Oxide in human organism.
Nitric Oxide is an inorganic compound considered to be a very dangerous polluter in the atmosphere. However, Prof. Murad discovered and proved that Nitric Oxide inside the human organism has a very positive role in various directions. With his discovery, Prof. Murad became a symbol of a unified inorganic and organic world, and all related science and technology fields. This is exactly the mission of SIPS to bridge and unify various fields of science and technology which is reflected, among others, in the following symposiums
Under this unique SIPS multidimentional and multidisiplenary umbrella, the summit also honors the 2020 STARS of sustainable science, technology, and innovation with a specific symposium in their honor and bearing their name.
In alphabetical order, they are:
The honorees cover areas of sciences that may look distinct, but are mutually related and share sustainability as a common thread.
The summit simultaneously incorporates numerous International Symposia covering the fields of: oxidative stress; medical innovations; green chemistry and polymers; physical chemistry; solid state chemistry; solution chemistry; electrochemistry; molten salt and ionic liquids; advanced materials; advanced manufacturing; advanced technologies; iron and steel making; aluminum; batteries; bio-extraction; cement; coal; coatings; composites; ceramics; ecosystems; education; energy production; environment; ferro-alloys; mathematics; metallic systems; metals and alloys; minerals; mining; multiscale materials; nanomaterials; non-ferrous smelting and hydro/electrochemical processing; quasi-crystals; rare earth and platinum group metals; recycling; and rotary kiln operations. The topics within each symposium span across scientific, technological, environmental, health, legal, management, financial, policy, taxation, social, and pedagogical issues.
