MIT has a Green Chemistry Purchasing Wizard. No specific course, but I have used it for teaching.

I had an interesting conversation this morning with the chair of our product design department about assessing greener alternatives to the trade chemicals (paints, glues, etc.) they use in their metal and woods shops. She is interesting in identifying sources of information that she can use with students and staff to identify greener alternatives (safer and less toxic) to the chemicals they traditionally use in those areas. Based on a short course she recently attended on the topic, she also feels that there is the potential for developing a course for design students on this topic.

I wonder if anyone on the list has identified a specific information source that supports this opportunity or has developed a course on this topic for either undergrad or graduate level non-chemistry students?

Thanks for any information on this.

We, the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do everything with nothing. Teresa Arnold paraphrased from Konstantin Josef Jire ?ek (1854 ?? 1918)
