This chapter reviews the key drivers behind and principles of green chemistry with special emphasis on life-cycle considerations, re-materialisation and trans-materialisation and sustainable resources including the use of agricultural and food wastes. Case studies of current projects in different sectors including fuels, electronics and consumer goods are used to illustrate these points and give examples of real research, applications and controversies notably over the competitive use of grown carbon for food and non-food products.
