The Green Chemistry Concept
Green Chemistry is the chemistry of a new age:
A concept that relies on Renewable Resources as key raw materials, preserves the more and more scarce valuable fossil raw materials and, based on the Responsible Care Global Charter® of the Chemical Industry and Paul Anastas’ 24 Principles of Green Chemistry & Green Engineering, guarantees a safe, environmentally, economically and socially responsible manufacturing and processing of heat and electricity, transportation fuels, products, and food including the thorough value added disposal at the end of life.
