Mines hosts Green Chemistry Summer School

GOLDEN, Colo., July 21, 2009 – Colorado School of Mines will host the American Chemical Society’s 2009 Summer School on Green Chemistry and Sustainable Energy for graduate and post-doctoral students from July 22 to 29 on the school’s campus in Golden, Colo.

Students will explore scientific solutions to global challenges at the session that includes six days of lectures covering topics such as “Greening the Supply Chain,” “Greener Solvents” and “Green Nanoscience.” They will hear presentations by leading researchers, collaborate on problem-solving projects and participate in laboratory experiments. Speakers include John Warner, considered to be a founder of the field by members of the green chemistry and engineering communities.

"Colorado is well-recognized in the scientific community for its work on sustainability and alternative fuels, making Golden an ideal site for the meeting. This is only the third time the session has been held in the U.S. and Mines is honored to once again host such a prestigious event,” said Kent Voorhees, Mines professor and member of the American Chemical Society board of directors.
