Generating solutions that improve both the economy and the environment.

Amy Holland

Since joining GreenCentre in 2010, Amy has focused on the application of CO2 chemistry and related separation technologies in the oil and gas field as well as wastewater treatment.  She has been involved with several design and scale-up projects, which included thorough safety analysis and process implementation. Prior to joining GreenCentre, Amy obtained a MSc from Queen’s University focusing on organic and organometallic chemistry; including catalyst synthesis and optimization for palladium-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling of secondary organoboronic esters and rhodium-based hydroboration reactions. Amy has been involved in the application of green chemistry for over ten years, initially working on the synthesis of ionic liquids for metal chelation from aqueous waste streams and as alternative reaction media and catalysts.
