Abstract [en]

The special volume on green and sustainable chemistry and engineering has fourteen papers that wereconsidered relevant to the present day issues and discussion, such as adequate use of raw materials andefficient energy, besides considering renewable sources for materials and energy; and changingeconomical canons towards circular economy. Businesses, governments and Society are facing a numberof challenges to tread the sustainability path and provide wellbeing for future generations. This specialvolume relevance provides discussions and contributions to foster that desirable future. Chemicals areubiquitous in everyday activities. Their widespread presence provides benefits to societies’ wellbeing,but can have some deleterious effects. To counteract such effect, green engineering and sustainableassessment in industrial processes have been gathering momentum in the last thirty years. Greenchemistry, green engineering, eco-efficiency, and sustainability are becoming a necessity for assessingand managing products and processes in the chemical industry. This special volume presents fourteenarticles related to sustainable resource and energy use (five articles), circular economy (one article),cleaner production and sustainable process assessment (five article), and innovation in chemical products(three articles). Green and sustainable chemistry, as well as sustainable chemical engineering andrenewable energy sources are required to foster and consolidate a transition towards more sustainablesocieties. This special volume present current trends in chemistry and chemical engineering, such assustainable resource and energy use, circular economy, cleaner production and sustainable processassessment, and innovation in chemical products. This special volume provides insights in this directionand complementing other efforts towards such transition.
