The Chemical industry in India is at the cusp of a new growth phase with global and Indian companies scaling up operations to meet the increased domestic and global demand. Most of the products that we consume can be traced to some form of chemical process which to our mind involves consumption of nature’s resources that are fast depleting. This also leads to damaging the environment if not handled sustainably. It is here that the role of Green Chemistry comes to the fore.
Green chemistry aims to reduce chemical related impact on human health and virtually eliminate contamination of the environment through dedicated, sustainable prevention measures. One of the key components of Green Chemistry is Environment Technology, also referred to as `green’ or `clean’ technology and it aims to conserve, monitor and reduce the negative impact of technology on the environment and the consumption of resources. Sustainable chemistry cannot be conducted in the absence of green chemistry.
The increased scrutiny of processes that damage the environment has led to governments giving more importance to the role of Green Chemistry in sustainability.
