Green chemistry is an approach to designing products and processes that reduces or eliminates the use and generation of hazardous substances. In the circular economy biological cycle, green chemistry can help to create sustainable products and processes that minimize waste and pollution. This presentation will provide an overview of green chemistry and its relevance in the circular economy biological cycle.
Principles of Green Chemistry
Green chemistry is based on 12 principles that guide the design of safer and more sustainable chemical products and processes. These principles include minimizing waste, using renewable resources, designing for energy efficiency, and using safer chemicals. In the circular economy biological cycle, these principles can help to create closed-loop systems that reduce waste and promote sustainability.
