It’s Not Easy Being Green: Chemistry and Sustainability

January 30, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

What does going “green” mean to you? Renewable resources? Recycling? What about simply learning to produce more quickly and efficiently? In a world where more than 75% of all industrial production requires the use of chemical catalysts\, Chemistry offers an often overlooked means of cutting energy and waste costs. This is particularly true of major industries like refining\, paper production\, and others using high heat and pressure. Join us at the January Science Café to take a lesser-known look at sustainability and learn why many chemical engineers spend their entire careers just working on one or two chemical reactions!
