PLU's Green Chemistry Initiative

PLU Department of Chemistry is committed to upholding green chemistry principles and actions that promote health and sustainability. We are currently developing a system to document past and current practices that are in alignment with the 12 principles of green chemistry. This document will help us track our efforts and serve to guide future initiatives.

Having pledged to Beyond Benign’s Green Chemistry Commitment, our department strives to evaluate our practices, incorporate green chemistry into our curriculum, and incrementally set new goals towards becoming a greener and more sustainable chemistry department.

Congratulations to our ACS PLU Chemistry Club for winning this year’s Green Chemistry Student Chapter Award! They will be honored at the Spring 2019 National ACS Meeting in Orlando, Florida.
