The Canadian Green Chemistry Engineering Network (CGCEN) is a network of the CIC. It is a multidisciplinary network that brings together leading researchers and practitioners in chemistry, biochemistry and chemical engineering with policy makers, industrial partners and professional organizations in the areas of alternate and conventional energy, chemical and biochemical manufacturing processes, new materials, and pharmaceuticals. CGCEN considers the whole innovation cycle from research to commercial implementation.
The CGCEN recognizes outstanding achievements of both individuals and organizations through the Canadian Green Chemistry and Engineering Network Awards.
