A Tool for the Sustainable Development of the Chemical Industry: Green ChemistryAuthor(s): Eleanor White
One or more chemical processes are used in almost all produced goods. We can't conceive what our lives would be like without the chemical industry's goods. However, in today's chemical processes, only a small percentage of the resources we extract from the Earth gets transformed into the required goods, resulting in enormous volumes of waste and dangerous pollutants. One of the most significant disciplines is green chemistry. Although this field has grown quickly in the previous 20 years, it is still in its infancy. Promoting green chemistry is a long-term endeavor that requires the resolution of several difficult scientific and technological challenges relating to chemistry, material science, engineering, environmental science, physics, and biology. Scientists, engineers, and business owners should collaborate to advance this subject. There is no question that the research and use of green chemistry will significantly contribute to our society's long-term growth.
