MilliporeSigma Launches First Green Chemistry Rating System
We often think of chemicals as highly toxic materials that could even prove lethal. But chemistry is everywhere and we rely on it for everything we need in daily life, from the ink in our pens to the actual food we eat. It is an integral part of our routines and industrial processes. As such, chemicals also need a green overhaul as they can be aggressive to the planet and animal lives,...

Take Giant Steps Toward Smaller Footprints with DOZN(TM)
Our approach to evaluating greener chemicals is based on the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry. We recognize that these principles distill into three major categories: improving resource use, more efficient use of energy, and minimizing human and environmental hazards. At present, we are not incorporating lifecycle impacts of raw materials (ie raw material extraction, pre-processing and...
