The SAGE Program Celebrates!

The Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry is celebrating the completion of six years of the SAGE IGERT program! Our celebration will take place during an all-day symposium at 775 Tan Hall on the Berkeley campus from 8 AM to 6 PM on April 30, and we will be highlighting our research, education and engagement through a series of 20-minute talks, poster session and other activities. We will provide lunch and refreshments throughout.

An agenda for the day:

Registration is closed for this event. For a complete record of the event please see the SAGE IGERT Sunset Celebration page link on the left side of our home page.

BCGC and Millipore Corporation Sign Accord

The Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry and the EMD Millipore Corporation signed a Confidential Disclosure Agreement in February, 2018, marking the first step toward collaboration on a variety of projects. Chief among them will be the testing and review of Millipore’s DOZN software program, a chemical procedure assessment tool based on the principles of green chemistry, and continuation of BCGC’s work in improving the safety of materials and processes in additive manufacturing (AM).

Green Chemistry Fellow at Millipore Samy Ponnusamy and Executive Director of BCGC Tom McKeag are current participants in Northwest Green Chemistry’s Sustainable Materials Roundtable for Additive Manufacturing Members, an outgrowth, in part, of BCGC consulting work with Autodesk starting in 2015.
