The 2012 GreenUp Conference and 4th Annual Michigan Green Chemistry Governor’s Awards Ceremony will take place in Detroit – a city fueled by innovation and ripe with opportunities for driving sustainable manufacturing through green chemistry and engineering.
Green chemistry and engineering is contributing to a revitalization of manufacturing by employing less toxic materials and processes in the manufacture and design of the products we use every day. Michigan is positioned to lead this effort and accelerate innovation through catalytic collaborations between our top-notch research universities, chemical companies, experienced designers and engineers, advanced manufacturers, and supply chain.
You don’t have to be a manufacturer to benefit from this conference. For researchers, chemists, engineers, industry CEOs, students, educators, entrepreneurs, decision makers, policymakers – anyone interested in Michigan’s march toward smart, sustainable growth – this conference is the opportunity to hear from leading experts and share innovative ideas on how we can best “green up” Michigan and drive sustainable manufacturing through green chemistry and engineering!
