Addressing these roadblocks, collaborating green chemists or engineers as full-time staff because the with green chemists and engineers at other institutions, and company must provide a competitive salary and benefits. It developing a Green Chemistry Institute workshop for new is important to note that the definition of a green chemist or faculty may provide inspiration and therefore encourage new engineer is still a gray area; some scientists practice green faculty to incorporate green chemistry and engineering con- chemistry or engineering but do not label themselves as cepts into their curricula.
