Le thème de la chimie verte est apparu dans le débat public il y a moins de quinze ans, mais il semble aujourd'hui stratégique pour le secteur. Loin d'une simple mise aux normes dictée par la régulation, il s'agit de choix industriels forts, qui ne se limitent pas au développement de nouveaux procédés mais engagent une réinvention des métiers de la chimie.
It's been less than fifteen years since the issue of green chemistry has become a matter of public debate, yet it now seems to prove strategic for that industry. Far from being a mere compliance with standards dictated by regulations, this is a matter of strong industrial choices - choices by no means limited to developing new processes, but truly involving a major overhaul of the chemistry industry.
