As the world moves towards transitioning into a green and clean place for us to habitat. The firms are now making changes to their operations in order to reduce their adverse consequences on the world’s climate change.
The chemical industry can play a major role in the sustainability goal of the world and aid the transition to become smoother by providing clean and green alternatives to the harmful chemicals used in today’s industrial processes. A firm that can aid green chemicals to expand is Ineos, a privately-owned UK multinational chemicals company headquartered in London, UK, and with registered offices in Lyndhurst, Hampshire, UK and London, United Kingdom. It is the top chemicals company in the world as measured by sales revenue: currently around $90 billion. Green chemicals or bio-based chemicals refers to the renewable chemicals produced from bio-based feedstock. These chemicals are less harmful and are produced primarily using raw materials, which uses fewer natural resources, maintaining the environmental balance. Green chemistry, also called sustainable chemistry, is an area of chemistry and chemical engineering focused on the designing of products and processes that minimize or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances.
The company can change its focus on green chemicals and make a difference in the biochemical industry which is a huge industry around the globe. With efforts being made in all sectors to reduce carbon emissions the only industry that can make a huge difference right now is the biochemical industry which can base its chemicals with the least environmental impact.
