The new field of green chemistry aims to improve molecule manufacturing processes and/or to fine-tune new “green” molecules in order to reduce the chemical industry’s environmental impact.
Green chemistry is often confused with plant chemistry. At SEPPIC, a pioneer in the green chemistry field, the two disciplines are frequently merged, but it is important to retain the distinction.
Surfactants: SEPPIC’s green chemistry
A pioneer in the area, SEPPIC has produced alkyl polyglucoside emulsifiers since the 1980s. These ingredients, which form the base of our Montanov range, perfectly illustrate our vision of g...
SEPPIC and green chemistry
SEPPIC has long applied sustainability criteria across all its business areas and has been practicing green chemistry well before 1998 when the 12 principles relating to it were defined. W...
Chemistry that respects the environment
For half a century, the chemical industry has been essential to our daily lives. The cosmetic, detergent and pharmaceutical products that we use every day have a direct link with the chemica...
