Good to be green:  Wool to deliver keynote address at Green Chemistry and Engineering conference

In today’s day and age, advances in green chemistry are leading the way for remarkable sustainability efforts. Evidenced in high-performance composites and resins made from soybean and newspapers, as well as computer circuit boards made from chicken feathers, in the hands of researchers, ordinary materials lend themselves to the creation of renewable resources.

Among those leading the charge at the University of Delaware is Richard Wool, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and a known authority in green chemistry.

Wool will share his expertise as the lead keynote speaker at the 16th annual Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference in Washington, D.C., June 18-20. Held since 1996, the conference annually attracts chemists, engineers, researchers, policy analysts, venture capitalists, students and others interested in global sustainability.
