Green Chemistry: Meeting Global Challenges (DVD)
Summary: This DVD provides a record of four highly illustrative presentations made at the 2002 Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference. These presentations show how green chemistry can address global challenges such as reducing the use of toxic chemicals, mitigating the risk of climate change, limiting water and resource depletion, and meeting growing demands for energy and food. Instructors can use this DVD to supplement undergraduate or graduate chemistry curricula and to enhance students’ knowledge of the relationship between green chemistry and sustainable development. Discussion questions provided with this DVD highlight and reinforce some of the more important concepts in the presentations. These questions can serve as a starting point for classroom discussion or regular course work. An instructor could also use the DVD to learn more about green chemistry applications and show how they relate to topics covered in traditional topics in the curriculum. The DVD was developed through a cooperative project of the American Chemical Society’s (ACS) Green Chemistry Institute and the ACS Education and International Activities Division with support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics.
