Green Chemistry Education Network
In 2005, several pharmaceutical companies created the ACS Green Chemistry Institute to discuss noncompetitive issues of green chemistry and engineering as an important approach for the design of its active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) manufacturing processes. Attend this lecture by Dr. Berkeley Cue, a thought leader in green chemistry, and learn about the goals this industry roundtable has set and the accomplishments it has already made. Hear about greener chemical reactions, environmental footprint reduction benchmarking, legislative action, education, and globalization in this lively talk. Discover how the institute plans to expand membership and take on some of the most challenging R&D problems facing this industry. Dr. Cue also explores the challenging business environment in which the industry finds itself and its possible impact on these R&D efforts.
