Green Chemistry Connection,
An Online Community for Green Chemistry Practitioners,
Launched Nationwide

NATIONAL – The Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA)<http://www.newmoa.org> announces the national launch of the “Green Chemistry Connection,” an online community of green chemistry practitioners and an information clearinghouse now available at www.GreenChemConnect.org<http://www.GreenChemConnect.org>.

NEWMOA created the Green Chemistry Connection<http://www.greenchemconnect.org/> in order to facilitate the exchange of information, ideas, and expertise on one easy-to-access and use web platform. NEWMOA conducted a “soft-launch” of the website in 2014 in the northeast with more than 115 members. With the re-launch of the website for a national audience, NEWMOA hopes to expand the conversation on green chemistry and further enhance the quantity and quality of information available on the Network.

“Perhaps there is nothing more important when attempting to change the status quo than effective communication. Green chemistry seeks to change the status quo to a more sustainable society and economy through innovation... [GreenChemConnect.org] will allow everyone interested in designing a thriving, prospering, sustainable world in discovering the power and potential of green chemistry to meet environment/health goals at the same time as meeting economic and job creation goals.” Paul Anastas, Yale University

GreenChemConnect.org<http://www.greenchemconnect.org/> brings together federal, state, and local programs, academic institutions, non-governmental organizations, and private companies that are working on green chemistry initiatives. The goal for the Green Chemistry Connection<http://www.greenchemconnect.org/> is to broaden the understanding and adoption of green chemistry practices and principles in business, education, government, health care, and society as a catalyst to growing a sustainable economy.

Through www.GreenChemConnect.org<http://www.GreenChemConnect.org>, members can network and share information. Some of its features include:
          ●          Discussion forums for sharing ideas or posting questions
          ●          Blogs for sharing views, expertise, and experience
          ●          News complied from multiple sources
          ●          Announcements about upcoming events and activities
          ●          Notices about jobs
          ●          Groups for connecting with members interested in a particular topic
          ●          Library of links to green chemistry websites, publications, videos, case studies, curriculum and training materials, promotional materials, and resource lists
          ●          A Member Directory of organizations, companies, and academic researchers Social media sharing through other social networking sites, such as LinkedIn

According to John Warner, President of the Warner Babcock Institute of Green Chemistry<http://www.warnerbabcock.com/>, “This portal has an excellent potential to bring green chemistry community together in an effective way. I look forward to watching this grow.”

NEWMOA developed this website using Word Press and administers and maintains the Network. It is funded in part by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange (P2Rx™)<http://www.p2rx.org/>. NEWMOA thanks the New England Green Chemistry Initiative (NEGCI) Steering Committee and Government Programs and Strategies Workgroup for their involvement and support with developing this Network.
