Upcoming Webinars

GC3 Green Chemistry Education Webinar Series: Sustainability at the Molecular Level
Thursday, April 17, 2014
2pm Eastern/11am Pacific
Register to Attend

Alister Innes   

Amy Cannon, Ph.D., Executive Director,
Beyond Benign

 John C. Warner, President and Chief Technology Officer, 
Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry LLC

 

The 12 principles of green chemistry were developed nearly 20 years ago and have withstood that test of time. Several organizations have embraced these principles into their R&D culture, providing internal training and inclusion into stage gate processes. This webinar will review the 12 principles providing the audience with a somewhat deep dive into each principle. Specific research and commercialization projects from the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry will be used to illustrate the principles across a diverse set of industry sectors. This intention of this presentation is to provide useful information to the bench chemist designing new products and processes and the non-technical individual working in the broader field of sustainability. This webinar will provide an important overview of green chemistry principles for a range of sectors and job classifications within firms.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the webinar, participants will:

Understand the definition and meaning of green chemistry

Understand the importance of integrating toxicity into chemical design

Understand the 12 principles of green chemistry through concrete examples

 

The GC3 provides a limited number of free webinars to non-members. To participate in all future webinars and view archived audio recordings and presentations become a GC3 member today.
