Industrial Applications of Green Chemistry

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.

In Food IndustryA number of developed countries have developed and adopted a strategy of sustainable development in food industry as well as solutions for strengthening sustainable technologies in food production and processing. Zero emission concept case studies are related to sustainability food industry.
