Dedicated to encouraging sustainable innov​ation through chemistry

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.
