Winona State University: Biodegradable Polymers in the Chemistry and Engineering Curriculum - An Application of the Principles of Green Chemistry and Engineering
In 2011, the MPCA issued a series of grants to support the development of Green Chemistry and Design curricula at more post-secondary institutions in Minnesota and strengthen the Minnesota and national network of post-secondary faculty teaching aspects of Green Chemistry and Design. Winona State University was awarded one of these grants to develop a lab to introduce green chemistry concepts at the general chemistry level and develop a project at the analytical chemistry level that requires students to monitor the extent of biodegradation of biodegradable consumer products.
