Elsevier R&D Solutions for Green & Sustainable Chemistry
Stay at the forefront of developments in green chemistry and achieve sustainable production goals by leveraging emerging research and chemical informatics tools.
Go green now and see long-term gains
Chemical manufacturers are discovering that they can keep ahead of regulatory change by investing in emerging technologies in sustainability and green chemical development, utilizing ‘green’ process chemicals, and by taking on the risk of shifting away from traditional petrochemical feed-stocks.
However, R&D and innovation teams know that sustainability as a strategy is a balancing act which requires focusing on improving the environmental imprint of manufacturing while not compromising on product quality or production costs. The transition to sustainable development and a circular economy will be the foundation of the industry of the future.
How we help: Design chemicals and materials for a more sustainable future
Elsevier’s R&D solutions help companies stay at the forefront of actionable developments in green and sustainable chemistry by enabling them to:
The chemicals industry is poised to be a leading force in green chemistry, but first companies must learn how to get all the value they can from their sustainability efforts. Find out how to overcome key challenges and promote a green revolution.
Industry leaders: Telling the story of green chemistry
When consumers think of sustainability, they don’t usually think of chemistry. At a recent roundtable, executives from companies like Dow and Merck shared their thoughts on how the industry can better communicate the importance of green chemistry.
Expert opinion: Supporting green chemistry goals economically
While working in process design and evaluation, chemical industry expert John Parks found that the processes which were best for the environment also tended to be better financially. Learn more about the practical approach to going green.
Transitioning to green manufacturing is a priority for many chemicals companies for reasons ranging from safety to cost savings. But alternative chemicals must be carefully considered before being used as replacements, which requires a solid strategy for finding safer substitutions.
