The Sustainable Chemistry Alliance plans to establish critical wet lab space for early stage technology development, creating a pipeline of proof-of-concept projects while our Domain Expert Network provides mentorship, advice and timely on-demand guidance to early-stage entrepreneurs as they develop their technology. The wet lab space is due to open Q1 2016.

As the only organization providing services specifically targeted to the region's sustainable technology stakeholders, the Alliance's cluster-building events have proven invaluable in facilitating collaborations, partnerships and educational opportunities. These events include workshops on supply chain analysis, forums on chemical sustainability topics, lunch and learns on a myriad of topics such as how to raise seed investments to how to strategically partner with large multinational companies and supporting programs such as Inspiring Women in STEM. 

“I'm excited about the cooperative energy behind this initiative to grow a promising industry and create high-quality jobs. Combining sustainability and economic development is a great way to balance Delaware's economic equation”

The DE Sustainable Chemistry Alliance is dedicated to encouraging sustainable innovation throughout the greater Delaware and North East region. Formed in 2010, the organization's mission is to foster sustainable innovation among key stakeholders in the public and private sectors. Working with thought leaders in industry, government and academia, we help link resources in ways that can both optimize the funding essential for R&D and translate the benefits of new and sustainable discoveries in chemistry into commercial opportunities.
