Green chemistry, also known as sustainable chemistry, is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances. Green chemistry applies across the life cycle of a chemical product, including its design, manufacture, and use.

Green chemistry technologies provide a number of benefits, including:

  • reduced waste, eliminating costly end-of-the-pipe treatments
  • safer products
  • reduced use of energy and resources
  • improved competitiveness of chemical manufacturers and their customers.

Topic: environment, seminars, engaging the youth, hands-on activities Audience: general public, teachers, students, school children, high schools
