Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc. and Momentive Performance Materials Inc. recently announced a partnership with Beyond Benign and its Green Chemistry Commitment (GCC). Beyond Benign intends to revolutionize the way chemistry is taught to better prepare students to engage with their world while connecting chemistry, human health and the environment. The GCC is a consortium of universities and industry partners designed to create systemic and lasting change in university-level chemistry education, and to increase the number of green chemists and scientists in the U.S.

“As a chemical manufacturer, we strongly support education that will promote the design of chemical products and processes that are more sustainable using a universal definition of green chemistry, which is one of the key elements of the ‘Green Chemistry’ commitment,” said Karen Koster, executive vice president of Environmental Health and Safety. “By supporting efforts to educate chemistry students in options that can improve performance and follow the principles of green chemistry, we are helping to ensure that future scientists expand existing and develop future sustainable solutions.”
