ENVR E-158A: Green Chemistry

Green chemistry is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances. While there are many mechanisms and tools available to assess the impact of materials and processes on human health and the environment, there are few tools available to help design and create products as such. This course presents the fundamentals of the twelve principles of green chemistry, and explores relevant examples of their practical use in commercial applications. It explores examples from a wide spectrum of industrial sectors including construction, personal care, pharmaceuticals, and electronics. Through examples, students are presented with the premise that green chemistry offers organizations a boost to innovation and faster time to market.
