Global interest in preventing pollution and reducing toxic emissions is steadily gaining momentum. In response to growing government and market pressures, chemical manufacturing firms turn to green chemistry practices to reduce negative environmental impacts. Green chemistry is recognized by the American Chemical Society (ACS) as the application of metrics to quantify greener processes for waste, energy, and hazardous substance reduction or elimination. Life cycle environmental impacts are also considered, such as reducing demand on diminishing resources, using more renewable feedstocks, and designing for product end of life or final disposition. Using state of the art digital technologies, such as IoT-based intrinsically safe tablets, chemical manufacturers are designing cleaner, more sustainable processes and developing more earth-friendly products.
Benefits of Applying Technology to Chemical Manufacturing Environments
By actively adopting green chemistry practices, top chemical manufacturers lead the way to a more sustainable future and reaping economic rewards and positive social impacts along the way.
For example, the unintended or irregular leaks of gases or vapors, known as fugitive emissions, are increasingly scrutinized. By applying green tech-based solutions to detect and reduce fugitive emissions, chemical manufacturers can realize significant benefits. These emissions represent product and revenue loss, a safety risk, and a negative environmental impact.
