New from the Green Chemistry Innovation Portal comes a unique opportunity to talk with innovative scientists about their green chemistry solutions. In this online text-based Q&A, we will talk about the Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry’s Greener Solutions Program, a project-based class that partners students with organizations involved in sustainable chemistry. Interdisciplinary teams of high-level students work closely with the partner organizations to apply the students’ knowledge, analyzing real-world opportunities for the adoption of safer chemicals and materials.


Join us on November 10th to ask the masterminds behind the Greener Solutions program anything you like: how it began, successes, lessons learned, or technical questions.


Sign into the Green Chemistry Innovation Forum and begin asking your questions November 3rd. From 3:00-4:30 ET (12:00-1:30 PT) on November 10th, the innovators will answer your questions live on the Green Chemistry Innovation Forum.


The experts joining us for this session will be:


Tom McKeag, Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry, Program Director

Kaj Johnson, Senior Director of Product Development, Method

Meg Schwarzman, Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry, Associate Director


Tom and Meg will give insider perspectives on the formation and success of Greener Solutions, while Kaj will discuss how Method came to be involved and what the innovative personal care company has gained from the program. There will also be a student who will contribute a student perspective on the advantages and challenges of participating in the Greener Solutions course.


Mark your calendars and visit the Innovation Forum today to see other ongoing discussions around green chemistry!
