GPE 2016 is the 5th International Congress on Green Process Engineering. The first four congresses have been extremely successful (Toulouse in 2007, Venice in 2009, Kuala Lumpur in 2011 and Sevilla in 2014) and have attracted between 200 and 350 participants from academia, industry, and research organizations from around the world. A similar success is expected for the fifth International Congress on Green Process Engineering. The proposed venue is the Fairmont Hotel in Mt. Tremblant, Quebec, Canada, a superb mountain resort location provides an environment favoring knowledge exchange, networking, the generation of new ideas, and the acceleration of applications that will benefit society.
