processes provide a diverse array of valuable products and
materials used in applications ranging from health care to
transportation and food processing.
Yet these same
chemical processes that provide products and materials
essential to modern economies, also generate substantial
quantities of wastes and emissions.
Chemistry is the utilization of a set of principles that
reduces or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous
substances in design.
extravagant costs needed to managing these wastes, tens of
billions of dollars a year, there is a need to propose a
way to create less waste.
treatment standards continue to become more stringent,
which causes these costs to continue to escalate.
describes both the science (theory) and engineering
(application) principles of Green Chemistry that lead to
the generation of less waste.
the use of milder manufacturing conditions resulting from
the use of smarter organic synthetic techniques and the
maintenance of atom efficiency that can temper the effects
of chemical processes.
implementing these techniques means less waste, which will
save industry millions of dollars over time.
