Minnesota Green Chemistry 2014: Connecting Policy, Technology, and Economy
Today (Thursday, 16 Jan 2014) I attended the Minnesota Green Chemistry Forum Conference in Minneapolis. The program focused on connecting policy, technology and the economy, and the event featured prominent members of the green chemistry business community. In the not too distant future, videos of the major plenary and panel sessions will be made available at the MN Green Chemistry Forum web site. If you'd like to read some quick snapshots from the day's events, simply go to Twitter and search the hashtag, #MGC14. Minnesota has tremendous potential to make even larger contributions to ecologically linked chemicals through its rich biological resources, including human capital. Check out some Minnesota companies, such as Segetis, BioAmber, NatureWorks, and Aveda.
