We do our best to make sure that our projects are environmentally friendly. Our philosophy of chemical research and engineering that encourages the design of products and processes that minimize the use and generation of hazardous substances. We have created a modus operandi for dealing with pollution in an original and innovative way. Our aims to avoid problems before they happen.

Our focus is on minimizing the hazard and maximizing the efficiency of any chemical choice. It is distinct from environmental chemistry which focuses on chemical phenomena in the environment.

John C. Warner developed 12 principles of green chemistry which help to explain what the definition means in practice.

 

The principles cover such concepts as:

bullet

the design of processes to maximize the amount of raw material that ends up in the product;

bullet

the use of safe, environment-benign substances, including solvents, whenever possible;

bullet

the design of energy efficient processes;

bullet

the best form of waste disposal: not to create it in the first place.

 

 

The 12 principles to save environment are:

bullet

It is better to prevent waste than to treat or clean up waste after it is formed.

bullet

Synthetic methods should be designed to maximize the incorporation of all materials used in the process into the final product.

bullet

Wherever practicable, synthetic methodologies should be designed to use and generate substances that possess little or no toxicity to human health and the environment.

bullet

Chemical products should be designed to preserve efficacy of function while reducing toxicity.

bullet

The use of auxiliary substances (e.g. solvents, separation agents, etc.) should be made unnecessary wherever possible and innocuous when used.

bullet

Energy requirements should be recognized for their environmental and economic impacts and should be minimized. Synthetic methods should be conducted at ambient temperature and pressure.

bullet

A raw material or feedstock should be renewable rather than depleting wherever technically and economically practicable.

bullet

Reduce derivatives - Unnecessary derivatization (blocking group, protection/ deprotection, temporary modification) should be avoided whenever possible.

bullet

Catalytic reagents (as selective as possible) are superior to stoichiometric reagents.

bullet

Chemical products should be designed so that at the end of their function they do not persist in the environment and break down into innocuous degradation products.

bullet

Analytical methodologies need to be further developed to allow for real-time, in-process monitoring and control prior to the formation of hazardous substances.

bullet

Substances and the form of a substance used in a chemical process should be chosen to minimize potential for chemical accidents, including releases, explosions, and fires.
