Green chemistry and the global water crisis*

Dennis L. Hjeresen

The Green Chemistry Institute, American Chemical Society, 1155 Sixteenth Street NW, Washington, DC 20036, USA

Abstract: Among environmental issues facing the world today, land-based sources of water pollution is one of the most pressing. Adequate supplies of satisfactory-quality water are essential for the natural resources and ecological systems on which all life depends. Green chemistry offers a scientifically based set of solutions to protect water quality.

*Lecture presented at the IUPAC CHEMRAWN XIV Conference on Green Chemistry:Toward Environmentally Benign Processes and Products, Boulder,Colorado, USA, 9-13 June 2001. Other presentations are published in this issue, pp.1229 –1330.
