Steelcase, the world’s largest furniture maker, and a partner in BCGC’s Fall 2016, Greener Solutions course, will join BCGC in a webinar hosted by the Green Chemistry and Commerce Council (GC3) on April 13 at 0900 PDT. The webinar will highlight Steelcase’s challenge to UC Berkeley’s graduate student team: brainstorm the concept of “modular polymer chemistry” with a focus on safer colorants that could be used in the company’s Node chair line.
The webinar will be just in time for GC3’s Innovator’s Roundtable in Grand Rapids, Michigan, April 25-27, and will feature Jon Smieja, Sustainable Design and Development Leader at Steelcase, and Mark Shapero, chemistry PhD candidate and Greener Solutions team member.
