The present COST Action (CA18112) – MechSustInd - focuses on the development of the field of mechanochemistry and mechanochemical techniques within the context of chemical, pharmaceutical industries, and process engineering.
Up-to-date, mechanochemistry has been shown to enable the reduction, or the elimination, of solvents, while ensuring increased yields and scope of substrates compared to solution-phase synthesis, better crystallinity of final products, and access to products that can be formed only under mechanical activation conditions. MechSustInd aims at establishing a multi-disciplinary network of European scientists, engineers, technologists, entrepreneurs, industrialists and investors addressing the exploitation of mechanical activation in the production of chemicals through sustainable and economically convenient practices on the medium and large scales
