Oppenheim Lecture Series – Green Chemistry: Innovation for Environmental and Economic Prosperity

Nov 16 @ 6:00 pm-9:00 pm

Historically, products and processes have been regulated with the goal of reducing toxicity to acceptable levels based on human health risks. Green Chemistry is a powerful tool in preventing toxicity before it occurs. This approach can lead to reduced hazard, improved performance, and economic growth simultaneously. Dr. Anastas will discuss scientific advances in the design of intrinsically safe and environmentally benign products and the resulting paradigm shift in understanding the relationship between people, chemicals, and the environment.About the Speaker:Dr. Paul Anastas, known widely as the “Father of Green Chemistry” for his groundbreaking research on the design, manufacture, and use of minimally-toxic, environmentally-benign chemicals, Dr. Anastas has an extensive record of leadership in government, academia, and the private sector.  To RSVP: http://bit.ly/sZa68I
