Science Serving Sustainability

The Institute for Green Science, led by Terry Collins, the Teresa Heinz Professor of Green Chemistry, has been established as a research, education and entrepreneurial development center in which a holistic approach to green or sustainability science is being developed. The technical research programs evolve around the scientific and technological development of TAML oxidant activators, which are extensively patented, trademarked and undergoing commercialization.

The Institute is dedicated to the intellectual growth and technical education of a new generation of ethically aware professionals who understand and practice science in the pursuit of sustainability — from the molecular level on up. >> Learn more about the Institute for Green Science

TAML® Activators are the first, highly effective, full functional, small molecule mimics of oxidizing enzymes and are the foundation of IGS technical research into design, mechanisms of action and applications.


What if anyone anywhere could safely remove persistent toxic chemicals from their water?
