Making the Switch to Green Chemicals in Manufacturing: Challenges and Opportunities



Making the Switch to Green Chemicals in Manufacturing: Challenges and Opportunities


Companies most often cite sustainability initiatives that improve manufacturing processes by reducing energy use and waste and toxic chemicals.

Transitioning to green manufacturing has become a major priority for chemicals companies for many reasons, from the desire to improve safety and sustainability to the need to gain competitive advantage in an increasingly regulated industry. But alternative chemicals must also be carefully considered before they are used as substitutions for existing ones.

This article addresses different aspects of the process of switching over to green chemicals, including:

  • Top goals for chemicals firms that are dedicated to going green
  • Specialized approaches for assessing chemical alternatives
  • The need to create a better, more systematic strategy for finding safer substitutions
