Green chemistry is becoming as broad a term as sustainability. How are those practices similar and different? What can you do at the bench-scale in your laboratory to incorporate these concepts and practices? Join us for discussion, case studies, and a wealth of tools and contacts to get started and establish a framework for next steps.
- Promote sustainability ideas, tools, implementation examples, and resources to bench-scale research lab managers and support staff.
- Understand green chemistry’s role in making the immediate environment in scientific research labs safer and more sustainable.
- Encourage scientists to be creative about acting on these opportunities in their own laboratories.
- Promote the Green Lab Alliance as an emerging nonprofit to help the scientific community share ideas, concerns, best practices and contacts.
- Promote PPRC’s Rapid Response and other services for practical tools and resources to help you take next steps toward green chemistry and sustainable laboratory practices.
