- Professor Mark Mascal, UC Davis
The Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence (GCCE) is a world-leading academic facility for pioneering pure and applied green and sustainable chemical research through its technology platforms on microwave chemistry, alternative solvents, clean synthesis and bio-based mesoporous materials. Our facilities allow us to work from grams to kilograms with a strong emphasis on waste valorisation and clean technologies. The GCCE also provides high quality education and training programmes and develops strategic partnerships with global corporations and world-leading universities.
