Catalysts are important in the manufacture of clean fuels, the conversion of waste and green raw materials to energy, clean combustion engines (including NOx and soot control and greenhouse gas reduction), the creation of clean water and polymers, and the conversion of polymers to monomers. Catalysts are also crucial in the development of hydrogen and syngas production technologies, which aims to provide clean fuels in the next decades. Over the last two decades, environmental catalysis has become increasingly important, not just in terms of the global catalyst industry, but also as a driver of developments in the entire field of catalysis. The creation of innovative "environmental" catalysts is thus a critical component of the goal of creating a new, more sustainable industrial chemistry.
Green Chemistry is a one-of-a-kind session for the dissemination of cutting-edge research on the development of green and sustainable technology. Green chemistry is the development of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use of hazardous compounds. Green chemistry applies to a chemical product's entire life cycle, including its design, manufacture, usage, and disposal. Sustainable chemistry is another name for green chemistry. By minimising or eliminating the dangers of chemical feedstocks, reagents, solvents, and products, green chemistry decreases pollution at its source.
