Green Chemistry

Green chemistry is all about helping those passionate about chemistry continue to satisfy their scientific curiosity with lab experimentation while also reasonably limiting environmental harm. The goal of green chemistry at Truman ACS is to provide friendly tips and fun games that keep efficient processes in the front of our chemists’ minds while not being in-your-face or condescending (no reverse evaporation here).

The Green Chemistry committee is also in charge of the biodiesel project, where used cooking oils from the Student Union and local dining halls are collected and converted to environmentally-friendly fuel for use in the university tractors. Throughout the spring semester, repeated trips will be made to the processing plant to carry out this conversion.
