Green Chemistry is an ongoing attempt to address the problems that chemicals and chemical processes can sometimes cause to the environment. Emerging in the 1990's, Green Chemistry primarily addressed issues within the synthetic chemistry industry. At that time, the EPA and UMass published a 12 Principles Checklist, as a way to reduce both the environmental impact and the potential negative health effects of chemicals and chemical synthesis. Removing hazardous materials from materials and processes decreases hazard-related costs associated with handling, transportation, disposal, and compliance. What began as a way to reduce waste, cost and toxicity has since become the source of amazing insights and innovation creating new materials ranging from water harvesting to Alzheimer treatment. Through Green Chemistry, environmentally benign alternatives to current materials and technologies can be systematically introduced across all types of manufacturing to promote a more environmentally and economically sustainable future. Please join us as we discuss the history, successes and potential of a new and better way of thinking about chemistry!



Speaker Bio:

Norman Fraley has spent the past 30 years in the field of Analytical Chemistry finding trace compounds for NASA, food, environmental, agrichem and clinical diagnostics. However, after spending a year in Ethiopia, he became an advocate for the creation of robust and durable analytical tools that could be used in developing countries where resources and power are unreliable at best. Currently, Norman is the Executive Director of the Frölich Institute for Research in Sustainable Technology, and is a Co-Lead Faculty member at Wake Forest University in the graduate program for the Science of Sustainability focusing on Biomass and Bioenergy.

Session Abstract:
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is transforming the nation’s food safety system into one that is based on the prevention of foodborne illnesses. It will be a system in which the food industry systematically puts in place measures proven effective in preventing contamination.

Keeping food safe to eat is paramount, no matter where it is produced, whether conventional or organic, whether the operation is small, medium or large, or includes produce or processed foods.

During this Tool Box Talk we will review the key elements of a Food Safety Plan that is compliant with FSMA and the resources available to industry professionals that work in the Quality and Food Safety area.

About the Speaker:
Michael Calderon is the Director of Quality and Food Safety at SunOpta. He has significant experience in the CPG and Tech industry focused in Quality Systems, Productivity, Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, Total Quality Management, Marketing Analytics and People Development.
