Retailers and manufacturers are increasingly seeking to reduce the use of toxic chemicals in consumer products and processes throughout the supply chain to meet mounting internal and customer sustainability demands. Feedstock producers are innovating and leading in the creation of new products and processes using agriculture commodities, forest resources, even trash. Green chemistry is steadily making its way into the classroom and laboratory, increasing new opportunities for expansion of Green Chemistry through improved tech transfer.
