Would you like to make your processes more sustainable? The 12 principles of green chemistry provide a conceptual framework for sustainable chemistry, but there is no comprehensive tool currently available to provide an easy solution to compare relative ‘greenness’ of processes.

MilliporeSigma’s free web-based tool – DOZN 2.0 – uses readily available information to help you to calculate the green scores for your processes and products, guiding your way towards improved sustainability. This will benefit any scientist working in the area of chemicals, life sciences, academia or government who is looking to adopt greener methods.

By the end of this recorded webinar presentation, you will have:

  • a good understanding of the DOZN 2.0 tool and its applications
  • learned how DOZN 2.0 scores would help you to make a sound judgement on the most sustainable processes for your work
  • discovered how DOZN 2.0 will help improve overall sustainability of your institution

This webinar has been brought in association with MilliporeSigma.
