Eric Beckman of the University of Pittsburgh and Terry Collins of Carnegie Mellon talk to Chemistry World about the EPA's recent announcement to reissue a call for funding applications.
Eric Beckman, co-director of the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Sustainable Innovation, says he can't recall seeing solicitations pulled so late in the process. He notes that they were 'the most significant' green chemistry RFAs he's ever seen from the EPA.
The developments are, perhaps, particularly interesting in light of the fact that the man hailed as the 'father of green chemistry', Paul Anastas, stepped down as director of the EPA's Office of Research and Development in February. He has returned to Yale University to direct its Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering.
