The Minnesota Green Chemistry Forum is pleased to present their fifth annual conference, The Midwest Bioeconomy and Safer Products Summit: Regional Innovations Solving Global Problems, at the Minneapolis Central Library on Thursday, February 19th, 2015.
In its fifth year, the Minnesota Green Chemistry Forum's premier event has expanded its focus to the greater Midwest, uniting the traditional green chemistry and bioeconomy sectors.
In 2013 and 2014, the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy and the Great Lakes Green Chemistry Network sponsored a series of workshops and webinars, “Safe Products, Made Safely: Green Chemistry Tools for Business,” with a grant from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Through supply chain management and product design, Staples, a leading office products provider, continues to demonstrate its commitment to moving toward products that are safer and more sustainable. As part of its commitment to help ensure a healthy environment for future generations, Staples seeks to avoid the use of hazardous substances, transition to safer product alternatives, and prefer chemicals that have been designed using green chemistry principles.
