Change Chemistry, formerly known as GC3, hosted the virtual Innovation Expo on April 26, 2023! The goal was to provide a forum for Change Chemistry members to promote recent innovations that advance the goals of green and sustainable chemistry.  Innovations varied from products, processes, services or current development of a process. 

The following companies were selected to participate in the annual Change Chemistry Innovation Expo:


A data sharing platform for chemical hazard assessments with a focus on safer alternatives.

Combining human expertise with artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide sustainable and green chemistry solutions.

Activated Silk(TM) L1 Biofinishing System is the first leather finishing system for all types of full grain leather that uses sustainable Activated Silk(TM) biotechnology as an alternative to harmful petrochemicals.

Chemoenzymatic process to produce biobased chemicals and construction of the Bioforge™ to scale the process commercially.

A unique technology to produce complementary bio-based, biodegradable products simultaneously - in a single fermentation process - and initially, microbes will be engineered to use whey (cheese and yogurt waste)-containing byproducts to co-produce polyhydroxyalkanoates and nontoxic, bio-based colorant additives.

AzkoNobel's coil coatings business provides paint for metal substrates used on buildings such as roofing, siding, gutters, etc. Many of those require a primer in order to prevent corrosion. AzkoNobel has developed and launched primer systems that don't use traditional anti-corrosive pigments which can be based on Cr(VI) and Cr(III) technology. This chrome-free primer technology has been proven out in the field and also across the world in different climate.

Nanofibrillated Cellulose (NFC) is a sustainable low-carbon bio-based additive which enhances mechanical, rheological, and other properties of advanced materials and specialty chemicals while improving sustainability.
