Quantifying the environmental impact of chemical technologies and products, and comparing alternative products and technologies in terms of their 'greenness' is a challenging task. In order to characterise various aspects of a complex phenomenon, a number of different indicators are selected into a metric. This book outlines fundamental developments in chemistry and chemical technology that have led to the development of green chemistry, green chemical technology, and sustainable chemical technology concepts, and provide a foundation for the development of the corresponding metrics. It includes different approaches to metrics, and case study examples of their applications, and problems in practice.
