Green Chemistry and My Grey Hair
John Warner has been called the father of green chemistry, but can he restore my grey hair to its natural color? On this episode, we’ll hear about John’s journey from a working class family in South Boston to helping to create the field of green chemistry. We’ll also find out if green chemistry can restore my grey hair – but if you can’t wait, scroll down to see our first-ever video accompanying the podcast.
John Warner is the co-founder, President, and Chief Technology Officer of the Warner Babcock Institute, which investigates the intermolecular forces in materials and applies the knowledge to manufacturing processes in order to create technologies that lead to better performance, are practical and cost-effective for their clients. He is one of the founders of the field of Green Chemistry, and has published over 200 patents, papers and books. His work in the fields of semiconductor design, biodegradable plastics, personal care products, and solar energy are examples of how green chemistry principles can be immediately incorporated into commercially relevant applications. John is the recipient of the 2014 Perkin Medal, widely acknowledged as the highest honor in American Industrial Chemistry, as well as The 2004 Presidential Award for Excellence in Science Mentoring, the American Institute of Chemistry’s Northeast Division’s Distinguished Chemist of the Year for 2002 and the Council of Science Society President’s 2008 Leadership award.
John is also the inventor of Hairprint, a non-toxic treatment that restores grey hair to its natural color. You can see me try Hairprint in our video, below, and learn more about this amazing innovation (and see a more accurate video of the Hairprint process) on the Hairprint website.
