Green chemistry is aimed at reducing the dispersion and accumulation of synthetic chemical products in the environment. At the process level this translates into maximizing atom efficiency (which is a measure for how many atoms of the reactants end up in the final product and how many end up in by-products or waste). At the product level fate considerations translate into securing product degradation after its useful life to innocuous substances. Toxicity. Green chemistry is aimed at less hazardous materials, processes and products.

260). Since the early 1990s green chemistry has gradually become recognized as both a culture and a methodology for achieving sustainability through chemical process and product development (Lancaster, 2002). At its core green chemistry is driven by concerns for the ‘fate’ and ‘toxicity’ of the raw materials, intermediaries and products involved in chemical synthesis: ● ● Fate. Green chemistry is aimed at reducing the dispersion and accumulation of synthetic chemical products in the environment.

This is concerned with the scale and intensity of the materials flow in industrial societies and can be interpreted as aiming to reduce the scale and intensity of the material exchanges between the industrial and the bio-geo-chemical systems.
