Seeking Green Chemistry Innovation

Greener Solutions Fall 2014

Greener Solutions is a course offered at UC Berkeley. In this course, students will:

  • Work in multi-disciplinary teams to tackle a research question posed by a host organization aiming to adopt safer chemicals in products or operations;
  • Investigate the human and environmental health consequences of a current technology; and
  • Look to biologically inspired designs to find what else is possible. This practice is known as biomimicry.

How do you compare the impact of 1 ton of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere to 1 milligram of an endocrine disrupter in our water supply, or compare $1,000 spent on complying with regulations designed to protect the environment with $1,000 spent on building more industrial capacity?
