Economics, safety and green chemistry



Economic decisions in chemical process optimization support green chemistry goals


A common misconception is that doing what’s right for the environment is more expensive, and thus not always good for the bottom line.

During his time working in process design and evaluation at Albemarle, chemical industry expert John Parks came to see that safety and economic viability, which are the major concerns for clients, are also actually “green” concerns.

In this interview you will discover:

  • Examples of how chemical processes that are better for the environment are also better financially
  • The biggest challenge to making chemistry more environmentally-friendly
  • How the Reaxys database can assist in chemical process optimization
