Pharos Is Shaping Green Chemistry Education

HBN | May 2020 | Newsletter

In April, we officially announced the latest release of Pharos. With a totally redesigned user interface and exciting new features, it’s easier than ever to prioritize chemicals management and identify safer alternatives to chemicals of concern. In addition to sharing two new Case Studies detailing how Klean Kanteen and University of Victoria use Pharos to improve their work, we hosted a webinar that showed how Pharos can be used to power your research and students' learning experience.

Dr. Meg Schwarzman, an environmental health scientist at University California, Berkeley, shared how her students researched safer chemical alternatives for various products. Also, Jeremy Faludi, Ph.D., Delft University of Technology presented his research in 3D printing. Both revealed their success stories of using Pharos to support research and chemical alternatives assessment courses. We also shared example assignments and curriculum from Assistant Professor Heather Buckley, Ph.D. of the University of Victoria.
