Creating a Center for Green Chemistry
Northwest Green Chemistry is being developed to take on that role. The center is a cooperative effort between industry, academic, government, non-governmental organizations, and tribal partners. The mission of the center is to enhance human and environmental health by fostering innovation and economic opportunities through sustainable and green chemistry and engineering solutions.
Key goals of the center:
The creation of the center is funded by a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to work with stakeholders to implement the Washington State Green Chemistry Roadmap.
An Advisory Council was established by Ecology to seek input into the creation of the center. This group meets quarterly.
