Advancing Green Chemistry
"The future belongs to those who give the next generation reason for hope." - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
The University of California, Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry (BCGC) is advancing green chemistry through research, teaching and engagement in the interdisciplinary areas of: New Chemistries, Health and Environment, Policy and Law, and Business and Economics. Investigators in chemistry, the environmental health sciences, public policy, business, and law are developing new science and scholarship that is placing green chemistry, alongside carbon-neutral technologies, as a cornerstone of environmentally sustainable development and the green economy.
