AbstractIn this article the authors discuss overcoming nontechnical barriers in order to implement sustainable solutions in industry. They suggest that maintaining sustainable practices will require a collaboration of efforts between industry, government, and educational institutions such as cooperation, openness, and reform, respectively. Also investigated is the outcome of a 2009 American Chemical Society (ACS) and American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) workshop on innovation adoption.
