We’re used to taking non-renewable resources from the ground, turning them into chemicals and then consumer goods, and eventually throwing them away. But a new approach turns this model right around. Green chemistry seeks ways to transform waste or renewable natural materials, and make safe chemicals and recyclable products. Prof. James Clark of the University of York’s Green Chemistry Centre describes examples that include cleaning products from sawdust and food wastes, fuels from waste cooking oils, medical devices from seaweed, and clothes from pineapple leaves.
