Weekly News Roundup

Sooo many news to catch up such especially updates on the wind energy market, green plastics, regulations and developments in the cleaning industry, and a little bit of green chemistry overview. Hopefully I'll be able to post a lot of them this week.

I'll also attend tomorrow's Society of Cosmetic Chemists' (NY branch) Suppliers' Day and maybe will get some updates on new green ingredients [and processing] development for cosmetics and personal care. Stay tune!

For now, here are last week's new roundup:

Green Energy Resources a 5-year contract for thirty-six (36) shipments per year of woodchips for energy use valued at $61 million/year. The company's target is to capture a 20% market share of European woodchip energy imports by 2011.

Green Americhem
Color and additive solutions provider Americhem says it is switching its primary coolant use in manufacturing to liquid nitrogen to reduce CO2 emissions. The company also plans to have zero landfill output from all their facilities by the end of 2013.
