The Green Chemistry Centre is the hub for a number of important networks that bring together academics, industrialists and other interested individuals and groups from around the world.
- The Green Chemistry Network (www.greenchemistrynetwork.org) was established by the Centre and now operates as an independent charity dedicated to promoting green chemistry worldwide. It includes a consultancy panel of experts drawn from academia and industry.
- MUSC (Manufacturing Using Sustainable Chemistry) is a joint venture between the UK’s largest chemical industry trade association (CIA) and the Centre with the goal of creating new supply chain partnerships for the production of green and sustainable products.
- NORSC (Northern Sustainable Chemistry) is a network formed by green chemistry academia from the top universities in the North of England. The combined skills and resources of the network will be bought together to help promote green and sustainable chemistry solutions for industry.
- The Anglo-French collaboration on chemicals from biomass brings together the complementary experience of the researchers at the Centre and within the Green Chemistry Network with the white biotechnology and development experts in the industry and Agro-Resources cluster in France.
- Star-COLIBRI - The project involves 5 European Technology Platforms and 5 major European Research organisations. Star-COLIBRI aims at overcoming fragmentation and promoting cross-fertilization in the area of biorefineries research.
- BIS (Biowaste Industrial Symbiosis) - A new international network aiming to exploit the emerging potential for research and development of valorisation of food supply chain waste.
- COST Eubis - A new COST Action network led by York on food waste valorisation for sustainable chemicals, materials & fuels.
- Green Chemistry Centre - Korean Collaborations - cooperative activities between York and the Korean Research Institute of Chemical Technology (KRICT) and the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH).
