What is Sustainability?
Sustainability is, avoiding the depletion of natural resources to maintain ecological balance. With sustainable chemistry less harm is caused caused to plants and animals, and also lowers the potential for global warming, ozone depletion and smog formation. Sustainability consists of three components social responsibility, environmental conservation, and economic development and it is important for perfect balancing between the people, planet and profit which is viable in the long term.Shop Now
Green Pro Certification
Green chemistry is the design of processes in such a way it does not generate any harmful chemicals in the entire life cycle beginning from raw material selection to packaging. Ruling out the disadvantages of organic cleaners where there is compromise in performance, we combine the best of green chemistry to bring out relentless cleaning that’s safe and gentle for humans and the planet.
12 Principles of Green Chemistry are:
It is better to prevent waste than to treat or clean up waste after it has been created.
Example:- Concentrated product formulation ( floor cleaner, dis infect, germ shield...) - considerably reduces the number of container to be filled.
Less Hazardous Chemical Synthesis
Synthesis methods should be designed in such a way that they posses little or no toxicity to human health or the environment. No or little waste generated
Safer Solvents and Auxillires
Avoid using solvents ,separation agents and auxiliary chemicals.
Example:- Our products use least VOC* ( except hand sanitizer)
Unnecessary derivatization (use of blocking groups, protection/ deprotection, temporary modification of physical/chemical processes) should be minimized or avoided if possible, because such steps require additional reagents and can generate waste.
Example:- Zero waste is generated during the manufacture of all Vooki products. There is maximum conversion as the entire raw material is converted to final product.
Design for Degradation
Energy requirements of chemical processes should be recognized for their environmental and economic impacts and should be minimized. If possible synthetic methods should be conducted at ambient temperature and pressure.
Example:- Company owned wind mill generates energy
Inherently Safer Chemistry for Accident Prevention
Substances and the form of a substance used in a chemical process should be chosen to minimize the potential for chemical accidents, including releases, explosions, and fires.
Our processes are safe.
Synthetic methods should be designed to maximize the incorporation of all materials used in the process into the final product.
Example:- During the manufacture of Vooki products no by-products or process water is generated, there is full conversion of starting materials to final product.
Designing Safer Chemicals
Chemical products should be designed such that they are fully effective and at the same time have little or no toxicity.
Example:- Toilet bowl cleaner-green acid.Floor cleaner, Disinfectant cleaner , Germ Shield- Use natural surfactants derived from corn and sugar cane. Glass cleaner is ammonia free.
Use Renewable Feedstocks
A raw material or feedstock should be renewable rather than depleting whenever technically and economically practicable.
Example:- Renewable energy generated by solar panels are used replacing electricity.
Catalytic reagents (as selective as possible) are superior to stoichiometric reagents.
Not applicable for any of the Vooki products
Real Time Analysis for Pollution Prevention
Analytical methodologies need to be further developed to allow for real-time, in-process monitoring and control prior to the formation of hazardous substances.
