LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Researchers at the University of Kansas have received a $4.4 million federal grant to help develop sustainable manufacturing processes for chemicals.

The university says the four-year grant to its Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis comes from the National Science Foundation and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Center director Bala Subramaniam says one of the major challenges for the chemical industry is to develop sustainable manufacturing processes.

A major part of the project will be to identify what part of the manufacturing chain involves toxic materials.

The university says the project will support five graduate students, five postdoctoral researchers and several pre-service high school science teachers.
