Title:  Sustainability through Chemistry: The Path Forward

Date: October 18, 2013, 2:30 PM

Venue: 103 Life Science Building

Abstract:  Society is on an unsustainable path. The change thatis needed is urgent. One of the few human forces of change that is capable of bringing about the needed in the timeframe required is called innovation. Green Chemistry and Green Engineering are fields that use the spirit and tools of innovation to design the products, processes and systems that are the basis of our society and our economy so they will be more sustainable. This talk will focus on the scientific achievements that have resulted in positive impact thus far and the steps that are being taken to ensure that the innovations resulting from these field are not just incremental but rather, transformative.
