Welcome to the home of the Michigan Green Chemistry Clearinghouse, a project hosted by the Center for Sustainability at Aquinas College through grant funding provided by the State of Michigan.

The overall goal of the Michigan Green Chemistry Clearinghouse is to accelerate green chemistry awareness, innovation and investment in the State of Michigan by creating and enabling a community of green chemistry advocates that are connected and informed. The Clearinghouse aims to be a dynamic and interactive on-line source of information, resources, databases, learning opportunities and interactive tools for citizens, business and industry professionals, educators, policy makers, entrepreneurs and others.

    Speakers:
    CORY ROBERTSON, Environmental Chemist, HP
    DRUMMOND LAWSON, Environmental Chemist, Arcteryx
    KRISTI BUDZINSKI, Green Chemistry/BioPharma Program Manager, Genentech
