GLRPPR Sector Resource: Technology Assessment: Chemical Innovation: Technologies to Make Processes and Products More Sustainable
Stakeholders generally didn't agree on how to define or assess sustainable chemistry. However, they cited several common themes, such as using fewer non-renewable resources and considering all stages of a product's life cycle when evaluating environmental impact.
GAO looked at more sustainable alternatives in 3 categories of chemistry technologies, such as renewable, less toxic solvents; catalysts from abundant metals such as iron; and processing methods that use energy and materials more efficiently.
