Synopsis

Green chemistry, also known as sustainable chemistry, refers to environmentally friendly chemicals and processes that result in: reduced waste, eliminating costly end-of-the-pipe treatments; safer products; and reduced use of energy and resources—all improving the competitiveness of chemical manufacturers and their customers. *chemicals that are less hazardous to human health and the environment are:

  • Less toxic to organisms and ecosystems
  • Not persistent or bioaccumulative in organisms or the environment
  • Inherently safer with respect to handling and use

Topics & Application Areas

  • Source Reduction/Prevention
  • Clean Feedstocks and Reagents
  • Clean Synthesis & Processes - energy & material reduction
  • Renewable & Waste-based Feedstocks
  • Chemical Design for Reuse & Recycle
  • Reuse or Recycle Methods of Chemicals
  • Chemical Treatments - hazard reduction
  • Chemical Disposal
  • Green Polymers: Materials & Processes
  • Green Polymers: Product Applications
  • Ionic Liquids
  • Other
