Green Chemistry is designed to develop processes and products to reduce or get rid of hazardous substances and chemicals. Also it is designed to prevent environmental impact and to help prevent pollution. Green Chemistry relies on the 12 principles to help come up with ways to prevent pollution and environmental impacts.
PYROCOOL technologies developed a “fire extinguishing foam that is nontoxic and highly biodegradable”. They created a product that isn’t toxic to the environment or any living creature and it also breaks down after it has been used. The product doesn’t affect the ozone layer unlike other fire extinguisher products. It is a universal fire extinguisher and cooling agent. Pyrocool technologies are considerate of the environmental demands of the public which it aims to serve.
The benefits to the company and environment from the Green Chemistry initiative is that they are able to fill a gap in the market and give customers something that doesn’t harm the environment. Not only do they give their customers what they want but what they need. The benefits to the environment are that people are now trying to find better ways to protect the environment from being destroyed. It has become a main priority so businesses look like they are concerned and doing something about but also trying to help.
