The Manufacturing Research Center (MRC) at Western Michigan University recieved nearly $1 million in federal funds (Department of Energy) to establish and develop a Green Manufacturing Initiative. This initiative provides a conduit between the university and industry to facilitate cooperative research programs of mutual interest to support industry's green (sustainable) goals and efforts.

Faculty and students from the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (all departments), the College of Arts and Sciences (Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Geology), the College of Business, and the Environmental Research Institute and Environmental Studies program participate in the Green Manufacturing Initiative activities.
