Scientists Set Sights on ‘Green’ Chemistry – trying to make the planet cleaner and safer and more profitable – chemistry with a conscious. Dupont is mentioned for changes to the way that Teflon is produced. Proctor and Gamble is working with Poliakoff to hopefully make plastic blafs out of sugar cane in Ethiopia, which are edible by cows.
Green chemistry starts with the first of 12 principals–“it is better to prevent waste than to treat or clean up waste after it has been created”.
Ain’t that the truth?!
