Environment, Health and Safety
are key parts of every chemist's job.
LVACS supports development of
safe practices and teaching tools
for all of our community outreach activities.
Our Local Environment
Lehigh Valley section members are active in providing chemistry knowledge and analysis to address the environmental challenges we face in the Lehigh, Susquehanna and Delaware valley areas. One specific example is the assessment and clean-up associated with zinc production in the Palmerton area.
Emerging from the pandemic in 2022, We celebrated CCEW with an outreach event at Da Vinci Science Center. The theme, "The Buzz about Bugs: insect chemistry" focused on the importance of insects as pollinators.
April 20th 2021 Chemists Celebrate Earth Week panel discussion to address the theme: "Reducing our Footprint with Chemistry" with personal sustainability stories.
