“Green Chemistry is based on a set of principles that when used in the design, development and implementation of chemical products and processes, enables scientists to protect and benefit the economy, people and the planet.
Green Chemistry uses renewable, biodegradable materials which do not persist in the environment.
Green Chemistry is using catalysis and biocatalysis to improve efficiency and conduct reactions at low or ambient temperatures.
Green Chemistry is a proven systems approach.
Green Chemistry reduces the use and generation of hazardous substances.
Green Chemistry offers a strategic path way to build a sustainable future.”

Here are some web casts on “Green Chemistry in the Circular Economy” with a very compact delivery of information. These are three 6 minute expositions on the current state of product development and materials toxicity. This is a huge issue in high performance design and construction, addressing the need for transparency and accountability by construction materials manufacturers.
