The chemicals we manufacture for modern needs are complex synthetic compounds. Most are untested and some are toxic to nature and the human body. But the new science of green chemistry offers the possibility of products that are “benign by design,” modeled on natural processes. Join us as we explore how by following the lead of nature we may be able to transform petro-chemistry into biochemistry.
Guests:
Janine Benyus, President of the Board, Biomimicry Institute
Dr. Paul Anastas, Director for the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering; Professor in the Practice of Green Chemistry, Yale University
Beverley Thorpe,  Director, Clean Production Action (International)
Dr. John Warner,  President and Chief Technology Officer, Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry
