How do the principles of green chemistry and engineering inform sustainable product design? Application of these principles ensures that products use materials that are safe, that can flow in a circular economy, and that have a beneficial impact on natural resources.
Three leading experts will each explain one of the three main branches of the Design Principles for Sustainable and Green Chemistry and Engineering and link these to successful business examples:
- Maximize resource efficiency: David Constable (Director, ACS Green Chemistry Institute).
- Eliminate and minimize hazards and pollution: Lauren Heine (Executive Director, Northwest Green Chemistry).
- Design holistically and use life cycle thinking: Kathy Hart (Senior Project Manager, US EPA Design for the Environment).
