The new Green Subject Division will:

  • Organize symposia on green and sustainable chemistry, technology, and chemical engineering at the annual CSC and CSChE conferences. 
  • Bolster industrial participation at the annual CSC and CSChE conferences. 
  • Provide professional training in green/sustainable practices at the annual CSC and CSChE conferences. 
  • Present Canadian Green Chemistry and Engineering Awards. 
  • …and further activities that will serve our community.

Event Description

In partnership with Habitable we are thrilled to share this invitation to our undergraduate student-led webinar presentation on safer alternatives to hazardous chemicals found in building insulation. With the support of many partners and collaborators, these students spent the semester learning about green chemistry, hazard assessment, environmental justice impact, chemicals policy, and technical performance metrics in order to create products that are safer for humans and the environment. Come learn from them and celebrate their hard work this semester!

This webinar is free and open to anyone to join. Visit the following Zoom link at the date and time of the event to join:
