overview
Overview
  • What is the OECD?
  • Some recent results on Green Chemistry Innovation
    • Trends from Patent Data
    • Survey of chemists
  • OECD work on Green Chemistry
    • Sustainable chemistry platform
    • Substitution of harmful chemicals
  • The Green Growth Knowledge Platform
the oecd
The OECD
  • 30 member countries (5 accession countries, 5 enhance engagement countries)
  • Economics-based, multi-sectoral
  • Forum to share experiences and derive policy lessons, source of comparative data
  • Council approves Programme of Work and Budget for a 2-year period
  • Committees and Working Parties supervise policy analysis work
  • Secretariat: 2000+ staff, based in Paris
  • OECD Chemicals Programme: e.g. Good Laboratory Practices (MAD), Test Guidelines Programme
green chemistry
Green Chemistry

Green chemistry is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances.

Trends from Patent Data

  • Work carried-out in 2010
  • Measures the output of innovation
  • EPO World Patent Statistical (PATSTAT) database, using search algorithms based on a selection of International Patent Classification (IPC) codes
  • propensity to patent both product and process innovations is higher in the chemical industry than in other sectors
  • Focus was on the following technologies:
    • Biochemical Fuel Cells
    • Biodegradable packaging
    • Aqueous solvents
    • Selected White Biotech
    • TCF Bleaching Technologies
    • Green plastics
survey of chemists
Survey of Chemists
  • Collaboration with:
    • Department of Government, London School of Economics
    • Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering, Yale University
  • Internet opinion poll: via SurveyMonkey
    • Yale Center Contacts
    • Green Chemistry International Chapters
    • Other Professional & Industrial Organizations
demographics
Demographics
  • 146 Respondents: Individuals (not firms)
  • Respondents reported their own location in 24 different areas
  • Firms with HQ in 22 different areas
    • OECD: 124 (80 in US)
    • Outside of OECD: 21
  • Market (primary):
    • Domestic: 64%
    • Export: 46%
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Sustained innovation in many areas of SC
  • White Biotech is area with most patent applications
  • Chemists in industry view green/sustainable chemistry as a growing, profitable area in the future
  • Regulatory requirements and product standards are most important policy factors driving SC innovation

other oecd work on green chemistry
Other OECD Work on Green Chemistry
  • Sustainable Chemistry Platformhttp://www.oecd.org/env_sustainablechemistry_platform/
  • Support information exchange and identification of projects that would benefit from international cooperation
berlin conference
Berlin Conference
  • 6-7 October 2011
  • Organised by German Federal Environment Agency, with UNIDO, GIZ and OECD
  • 100 experts from 14 countries
  • Focus on:
    • Supply chain issues
    • Chemicals policies and management
    • Sustainable chemistry in SMEs and developing countries
key recommendations for oecd
Key recommendations for OECD
  • Decision support tools
    • They have a crucial role to play in supporting substitution
    • A large number of tools has been developed and is available
    • Recommendations:
      • Create an inventory of decision support tools
      • Develop a toolbox
  • Data
    • Issue with access and availability
    • Recommendations:
      • Efforts to make existing data more accessible and produce more of it
oecd work in 2013 14
OECD Work in 2013-14
  • Programme of Work 2013-14: “Tools and approaches to support decision making for the substitution of harmful chemicals”
    • Set-up of an Ad Hoc Group (2012)
    • Inventory of tools and scoping of issues (2012)
    • Workshop to take stock and discuss follow-up (early 2013)
    • Feasibility report on toolbox (2014)
    • Inventory of data sources (2014)

Mission:

    • enhance and expand efforts to identify and address major knowledge gaps in green growth theory and practice
    • help countries design and implement green growth policy
