Green chemistry and engineering is revolutionizing the way we work and live, by employing less toxic materials and processes in the manufacture and design of the products we use every day while protecting human health and the environment. New regulations and consumer demand are pushing green chemistry and engineering principles to create new markets, reduce costs, increase safety, and gain a competitive edge.
The 2014 Michigan Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference is a fantastic platform to unify business leaders, engineers, chemists, researchers, teachers, and policymakers to move green chemistry and engineering forward in Michigan.
Designed for anyone interested in innovation and sustainability in Michigan, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from leading experts and share solutions to “green up” Michigan through green chemistry and engineering. Presenters will be talking about designing, innovating, and manufacturing what’s next by developing less hazardous, more effective materials, processes, and products.
This conference qualifies for 5 Continuing Education Hours (CEHs) for Professional Engineers.
