Overcoming non-scientific barriers to making sustainability a reality
Environmental Science & Technology
With sustainability emerging as a top priority for businesses and industries, a workshop of 40 experts has identified and published a set of recommendations for businesses to overcome the nontechnical barriers to applying sustainable industrial practices. Their article is scheduled for the June 15 issue of ACS' Environmental Science & Technology, a semi-monthly journal.
In the article, Martin A. Abraham and colleagues point out that important scientific, or technical, advances are occurring in green chemistry and green engineering. These enable industry to embrace more environmentally friendly processes that minimize the use of potentially toxic substances, for instance, and produce less waste. Despite such technical advances, other barriers to implementing sustainable practices remain.
The American Chemical Society and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers convened the workshop to identify approaches fo
