The GC3 is looking for excellent articles, videos, etc. that communicate the benefits of and challenges to green chemistry practices in industry. If you have any materials that you can provide, please respond to this post and attach or link to them.
Some examples of what we are looking for:
An article from the Guardian's Green Chemistry Meeting last year: In the future, the best chemistry practices will be green | Guardian Sustainable Business | The Guar...
And video from that meeting Chemistry's green revolution – video | Guardian Sustainable Business | The Guardian
It'll be great to have those resources all compiled! Good idea.
We at the Green Chemistry Initiative at UofT are making a video series to explain the 12 principles of green chemistry. While these videos are targeted more towards a high-school audience, we do often touch on the relevance of the principles to the chemical industry, including benefits and challenges. Here's a link to the playlist of videos we have so far: GreenChemUofT - YouTube (we currently have 6/12 - the project is a work in progress). We also have a blog post to accompany each video, which is all compiled over here: Green Chemistry Video Series – The Green Chemistry Initiative Blog
Hopefully this video series helps compliment the other resources about green chemistry in industry!
We have a couple of recent webinar recordings that might be useful from our Entrepreneur Webinar Series: From a Green Idea to a Successful Business. The first section of "Finding Capital for Green Entrepreneurism" is focused on the business case for green chemistry, presented by David Levine (Co-founder and CEO, American Sustainable Business Council). Principles of Sustainable Product Design covers the application of green chemistry and engineering to product design, with David Constable (Director, ACS GCI) on "maximizing resource efficiency", Lauren Heine (Executive Director, NGC) on "eliminating and minimizing hazards and pollution", and Kathy Hart (Senior Project Manager, US EPA DfE) on "designing holistically and with life cycle thinking". I'll keep my eye out for any others.
