Green Chemistry Project
The Ecology Center helped create the nation’s first state-level Gubernatorial Green Chemistry Awards, and the first state-supported Green Chemistry Program. The program promotes research, development, demonstration, education and technology transfer to advance Green Chemistry in the state.
The Ecology Center is part of a consortium of organizations helping to build the Michigan Green Chemistry Clearinghouse, a compendium of activity on Green Chemistry in Michigan.
In collaboration with the Clearinghouse, the Center publishes Catalyst, a quarterly newsletter on Green Chemistry activities for the general public.
