Green chemistry competently utilizes raw materials, eliminates waste and avoids the use of toxic and/or hazardous reagents and solvents in the manufacture and application of chemical products. Paul Anastas formulated some simple rules that how sustainability can be achieved in the production of chemicals - the "Green chemical principles". The concept is exemplified with 12 Principles of Green Chemistry. Green chemistry reports the environmental impact of both chemical products and the processes by which they are produced. Green chemistry reduces waste at source, i.e. it is primary pollution prevention rather than waste remediation. The field of "green technology" encompasses a continuously evolving group of methods and materials, from techniques for generating energy to non-toxic cleaning products.

Applications of green chemistry include the use in pharmaceutical industry, along with new methodologies that decrease or eliminate the use of solvents, or render them safer and more effective. Green chemistry has also motivated numerous ways to synthesize petroleum-based chemicals from biological materials instead, regularly plant matter or waste. Green chemistry has different industrial applications in Designing Safer Chemicals Production, Food & Flavor Industry, and Green Technologies in the Pharmaceutical Industry, Paper & Pulp Industry, Polymer Industry, Sugar & Distillery Industries, Textile and Tannery Industry and Green Chemistry in Agrochemicals. Green chemistry also plays an important role in alternate energy science, and the production of novel methods to make solar cells, fuel cells, and batteries for energy storage. Self-assembling molecules uses bio-based plant materials which also involves green chemistry principles. The main goal of green chemistry is to reduce or eliminate waste in the manufacture of chemicals and its allied products, which has inspired the design of green next generation catalysts. Other developments in green chemistry are the trend toward redesigning chemical products to reduce their risk.
In Pharmaceutical Industry : Chemical industries have been influenced by Green Chemistry and Engineering principles. The pharmaceutical industry is very responsive to these greener industrial alternatives. The pharmaceutical industry is embracing more and more green processes and innovative technology operations in research departments of many drug manufacturers are advancing new green methodologies, biocatalysis reactions, less solvents and cuts in waste production, and at the same time introduced safety and health regulations to protect their workers.
In Agrochemicals: Chemically synthesized agrochemicals are harmful to the environment as they are non-biodegradable and are produced by environmentally unfriendly processes. They also affect human and animal health by entering through the food chain. Therefore, to successfully reap the benefits of crop protection products without compromising the environment and human health, going forward, it is essential that producers and users of crop protection products to focus the following elements: 1. Shift to green chemistry manufacturing processes 2. Develop "green" agrochemicals 3. Use crop protection products judiciously. The Agrochemical Industry is witnessing a gradual shift towards implementation of green practices.
In Polymer Industry: Polymer reaction engineering is a prime target for transformation towards greater sustainability. This transformation is being made possible via the 12 principles of green chemistry. Enormous opportunities from the replacement of solvents to the use of less toxic monomers in polymer production. The use of renewable feedstocks is a highly active area of research, despite limitations to the supply of these feedstocks. Achieving the use of safer solvents and reaction conditions also appears to have elicited significant research effort.
In Textile Industry: The textile industry is reflected as the most ecologically unsafe industry in the world. Recently different steps have been taken to make textile processing greener. These include use of greener fibres, greener solvents, eco-friendly, greener dyes and auxiliaries, optimised and efficient processing, bio-processing, recycled textiles, biodegradable surfactants, greener preparation and dyeing, eco-friendly flame retardants, water and chemicals and elimination of hazardous chemicals. In paper and textile industry, efforts are being made to develop new greener techniques, which results in reduction in water usage, time, and energy in textile processing.

Green food production often suggests organic farming practices a few centuries ago. This type of farming uses a small area of land for crops and another area for grazing beef, sheep, and goat. Farm entities were almost always self-sufficient with no use of pesticides or herbicides and the only fertilizer used was manure. Organic farming suits the notion of a green technology. Primary, secondary, and tertiary processing techniques are discovered to transform raw produce into value-added foods and ingredients. Primary processing techniques such as cleaning, grading, dehulling, sorting, and milling are used as initial step in processing most of the grains. One of the most promising technological approaches to decrease environmental footprint in food processing is the use of enzymes. As biological catalysts, enzymes speeds up reaction rates and results in savings in terms of time, energy, and cost. Food enzymes provide advantages in terms of specificity, sensitivity, their relative non-toxicity, high activity at low concentrations, and ease of inactivation. Enzymatic approaches entail milder treatments and/or mild reaction conditions, thus are more environmental friendly and would protect the environment better compared to traditional methods.

Green Engineering is defined as environmentally conscious about attitudes, values, and principles, combined with science, technology, and engineering practice, all directed toward improving local and global environmental quality. Green Engineering encompasses all of the engineering disciplines, and is consistent and compatible with sound engineering design principles. The field of green engineering follows the philosophy that designing and producing should minimize damage to humans and the environment, which will cause the products and processes to be more cost effective in the long run. Therefore, green engineering is actually a way to make many of the things people use in everyday life more efficient, safe, and long-lasting. As green engineering is a category of the field that many sub-sets fall under, green engineers come from areas such as industrial engineering, civil engineering, and electrical engineering. In fact, all engineers can utilize green engineering principles regardless of the specific area of engineering that they are focused on. The field of green engineering relies on certain principles such as minimizing waste and minimizing the use of natural resources that are not sustainable.

Agriculture Production processes, especially those that are intensive such as protected horticulture, degrade the environment to numerous extents. The protected horticulture sector is likely to use low toxicity products that will maintain the hygienic control of vegetables grown in protected environments (greenhouses, tunnels and padding). Growers need to combine good agricultural practices and standards of quality assurance, so food is healthy and attractive when consumed by the population. This presents a global challenge for the protected horticulture industry. One of the best approaches suggested for horticulture is the integration of new and environmentally, eco-friendly technologies such as innovative green chemistry, as part of a policy-driven approach to prevent and reduce the contamination. This strategy can be achieved by complying with the principles of green chemistry which promotes sustainability, efficiency and economy. Use of peroxyacetic acid mixtures in liquid solutions meets all of the principles of green chemistry. It is promising to integrate green chemistry approaches in protected horticulture and food industry to release biodegradable components that do not pollute the environment.
Society has entered the new century, the trend of economic globalization has become increasingly serious, and the environmental problems faced by all countries in the world have become increasingly prominent. In order to fully protect the ecological environment, and promote the green, environmental protection and sustainability of social and economic development, all the countries are vigorously carrying out research work on new energy sources. In the era of increasing chemical pollution, green chemistry and chemical industry came into being, and in the development of chemistry and chemical engineering, using the idea of "green", adopt green manufacturing methods, and paying attention to the training of talents in the field of expertise will be the main direction and goal of our country's future efforts in the field of chemistry and chemical engineering.
