Abstract:

The
development and application of green chemistry and engineering principles in
the academic, industrial, and government sectors should be explored to promote
sustainability and the added value of products. Innovations in the chemical
design and development of new material products, such as waste-to-energy
(alternative energy), composting, anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis and
gasification, material recycling, and modeling in processes that lead to
sustainable practices, are essential to achieving a safe and clean environment.

The
green synthesis of nanoparticles and the utilization of waste have gained
significance in recent years because of their advanced uses in the biomedical,
chemical, energy, and materials fields, to name a few. Many studies have
focused on green chemistry for the development of new products, including
biofuel as an alternative and renewable form of energy. Physical
characteristics, the materials used, the technique involved, configuration, and
position parameters play a crucial role in reaching the optimum process in the
production of nanoparticles, composites, and bioenergy for tropical environment
applications.





A clean environment
and clean technologies can be achieved through the use of a chemical design
process that minimizes waste and improves product performance. In addition, the
utilization of raw materials from secondary resources or material recycling may
have good environmental effects. Improving the design and process to create a
new product in such a way that they meet sustainable and green requirements is
also needed.
