About this book

This volume is part of a two-volume set devoted to promoting the concept of green chemistry. This first volume illustrates the pronounced impact that green engineering is having in a wide range of areas within chemical engineering, its counterpart will examine the role of green chemistry within chemical synthesis, each leading to a greater understanding and hopefully greater adoptions of these techniques by governments and chemical industry.
