  • The ability of chemists to redesign chemical transformations to minimize the generation of hazardous waste is an important step in pollution prevention.
  • By preventing waste generation we minimize hazards associated with waste storage,transportation & treatment.
  • Greener route of indigo creates very less wastage due to renewable feedstock and enzymes used in conventional synthesis such as aniline,chloroacetic acid are avoided.Overall atom economy increases.
  • Other example include green synthesis of Ibuprofen & adipic acid.
