Presented by the College of Natural Resources and the LBNL Helios Project

Even if all consumers and retailers insisted on buying and selling only non-toxic materials, today's manufacturers would only be able to produce a fraction of current goods using non-hazardous materials. The limiting factor is current knowledge of materials science and chemistry.

"Green Chemistry" seeks to reduce or eliminate our reliance on hazardous materials. In this lecture, University of Massachusetts Professor John Warner, the founding theorist and practitioner of the field, will discuss opportunities for a new generation of materials designers to create a safer future.
