This day-long conference will include keynotes, panels and break-out sessions. Morning sessions will focus on research, technology, work force and labor issues, and academic partnerships. The focus of the afternoon will be business success stories, and the “nuts and bolts” of implementing green chemistry for either start-ups or established companies.
Dr. Paul Anastas is known as one of the “fathers of green chemistry,” and will be a keynote speaker. He is Director of the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering at Yale and has pioneered groundbreaking research on the design, manufacture, and use of minimally-toxic, environmentally-friendly chemicals. Other speakers representing Ecolab, Cortec, Beyond Benign, BlueGreen Alliance, University of Minnesota, South Dakota State University, Pauly DeVries Smith Deffner, Fredrikson and Byron, IATP and more will be panelists.
