Thanks to innovation and R&D, we want to replace little by little petrochemistry with green chemistry by being a real actor of the energetic transition.
We propose to our customers solutions and products that are respectful of the environment and that are developed from renewable energies and that follow the 12 steps of green chemistry.
It’s better not to produce waste than having to treat them or get rid of them.
Implementation of synthesis methods that incorporate ,in the final product , all materials part of the process.
Conception of synthesis methods that are less dangerous:
As far as possible, synthesis methods should use and produce little or non toxic substances for men and environment.
Conception of chemicals products that are safer :
Chemicals products development that reach for the desired proprieties by being the least toxic.
Solvents and auxiliaries less polluting :
Giving up using synthesis auxiliaries ( solvents, separating agents, ..) or choosing harmless auxiliaries when necessary.
Looking for fuel efficiency :
The necessary energetic expenditure to chemical reactions must be examined according to its environmental and economic assessment and be reduced. As far as possible, synthesis operations must be done in an ambiant temperature and pressure.
Using renewable energy :
Using natural resource or raw material rather than fossil products if economy and technology can allow it.
Reduction of the number of derivate:
Avoid, if possible, the useless derivates multiplication by reducing the use of blocking radicals ( protectors, or temporary modification of the physical and chemical processes). They ask for more reagent and can produce more waste.
Using catalytic agent is better than using stoichiometric processes.
Product conception for the purpose of their degradation:
Chemical products must be designed in a way that at the end they decompose themselves into harmless biodegradable waste.
Real time observation in order to prevent pollution :
Observation methods must be improved in order to allow monitoring and real time control for the operations and their follow-up before any formation of dangerous matter.
A more reliable chemistry :
The chemical substances and their physical state in a chemical process must be chosen in order to prevent accidents like dangerous emanation, explosions or fire.
