The Minnesota Green Chemistry Forum presents our third annual green chemistry conference, Minnesota Green Chemistry 2013: Beakers to Business Plans. This day-long conference will feature keynotes, panels and break-out sessions highlighting what it takes to bring green chemistry into the marketplace. 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 both start-ups and established companies.

Dr. Paul Anastas of Yale University, one of the “fathers of green chemistry,” and Jim Hobbs, Vice President of Business Development at BioAmber, will present the keynotes.
