List of websites related to production processes and processing

There are many factors to consider when thinking about industrial production processes in the context of sustainable chemistry. Reduced energy demand, natural resource intensity, and hazardous chemical use are cited most frequently. Other factors to consider include waste capture and re-use, material efficiency, and occupational safety.

More research is needed in the areas of process optimisation and innovative process technologies. In Europe, many of these requirements are implemented via the IPPC-directive.

List of websites related to catalyser techniques and clean reagents

Catalysis has the potential of achieving higher yields and better reaction specificity. Many processes in industrialised countries are dependent on catalysis. However, difficulties with separating products and catalysts often generate a great deal of waste. Innovative alternatives like ionic liquids and supercritical fluids can enhance reaction efficiency by improving product recovery, and they also reduce the potential for emission of volatile solvents.
