Nature is Alive with Chemistry | Innovation Lessons from Earth’s Oldest & Wisest Green Chemist
Chemistry is a major contributing factor enabling our own technologies, from textiles and cosmetics to electronics and medicine.
In this pre-recorded webinar available on demand, Biomimicry 3.8 chemist Mark Dorfman unpacks the complexity of chemical science as he takes us on an illuminating tour of nature’s chemistry-based adaptations, including a deep dive into how we can “use life-friendly chemistry”–one of Life’s Principles that represent the main strategies and deep design lessons Life has evolved over 3.8 billion years in order to survive and thrive.
If we use life-friendly chemistry, we could design in a way that allows materials the break down into benign constituents, build selectively with a small subset of elements, and do chemistry in water. Mark will share innovate design tips inspired by nature’s chemical processes and structures that can result in cutting-edge, high-impact designs that increase sustainability, and boost bottom lines–perfect for any organization looking to advance cutting-edge innovation.

“To have up-to-the-minute thinking on technology, tools, markets, and trends felt very empowering. The level of discussion in the Q&A with the people gathered added to this feeling of having a finger on the pulse of where the world is, and is going. Several businesses and tools were highlighted for their action in this area, which I will check out.”
