Following the successes of the First Regional Conference for the Pacific Northwest on Sustainability, AIChE is proud to feature the Second Regional Conference on Sustainability to be held once again in Seattle, Washington this spring 2011.

THE MOTIVATION for the Regional Conference is to provide a venue for professionals involved or interested in the topics of sustainability and environmental engineering across the Pacific Northwest to engage in technical presentations and forums that inform and educate attendees on the topics of sustainability, green processes and chemistry and environmental management. The Regional Conference will serve as a platform for engineers within this forward-looking region to exchange emerging ideas about forms of implementation of sustainable processes, products and systems, as well as new technologies on the brink of commercialization or implementation for environmental applications.

CONFERENCE FOCUS AREAS WILL INCLUDE:
 Sustainability topics of direct relevance to the Pacific Northwest, including:
o Climate Change
o Ecological Risk Assessments
o Green Building Design
 Innovation in Sustainable Process Engineering, Design and Product Development
 Urban Design of Sustainable Communities
 Industrial Ecology
 Renewable Energy
 Water Conservation and Waste Elimination

CONFERENCE COMMITMENT:
Like the First AIChE Regional Conference on Sustainability in the Pacific Northwest, the Second Conference seeks to promote environmental stewardship and awareness of sustainability through its technical and social programming. The Conference Planning Board has committed to implementing sustainable practices throughout the planning and execution phases of the Conference. These initiatives include pursuing measures to enhance energy efficiency, promote use of renewable resources, rely on recycled, compostable and recyclable products, purchase carbon offsets and reduce water consumption and waste generation at the Conference venue. The Conference Planning Board will make every effort to encourage Conference goers, sponsors and organizers to adhere to the Conference Commitment.
