I am off again today visiting Rhodia's new North American research and technology center in to Bristol, Pennsylvania. According to my google source, the lab's research team develops and launches about 20 new products, and files an average of 20 new patent applications each year.
I'm sure there are green chemistry brewing around there somewhere. I'll let you know the specifics as soon as I get some information.
For now, I have to leave you with this week's news roundup. Hopefully next week, I'll be able to share some of the green ongoings at the HBA cosmetic show in New York, BIO's Pacific Rim Summit on Industrial Biotechnology being held in Vancouver, and some solar news that came from the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference in Spain.
