GLRPPR Sector Resource: Michigan Green Chemistry Awards Program

Title:
Michigan Green Chemistry Awards Program

Abstract:
In October 2006, Governor Jennifer M. Granholm issued Executive Directive No. 2006-6 (Directive), "Promotion of Green Chemistry for Sustainable Economic Development and Protection of Public Health," that established state policy encouraging the use of safer, less toxic, or non-toxic chemical alternatives to hazardous substances and the research, development, and implementation of green chemistry in Michigan. The DEQ has been given primary responsibility to implement the Directive, including establishing a Michigan Green Chemistry Program and convening a Michigan Green Chemistry Roundtable (Roundtable). The Roundtable, which is comprised of experts representing business, academia, and environmental interests groups, has played an active role in the development of the Awards Program in order to promote excellence in innovation, economic development and public health risk reduction by businesses and institutions. The site includes summaries of past winners' projects as well as information about applying for the current year's award.
