Green chemistry is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances.

Green chemistry offers a different approach to conventional chemistry and engineering through the thoughtful application of principles that aid the design of sustainable chemical products and processes by focusing individuals on the development of innovative solutions, opportunities, and challenges. Applying these principles collectively will result in products and processes that protect and benefit the economy, people, and the planet and help us make significant strides toward a more sustainable future.
