QUOTE:-
"Most industries remain dependent on hazardous substances. Many obstacles, including insufficient investment and lack of training, keep chemists from embracing green chemistry and designing safer substitutes for the vast majority of compounds in use today." Los Angeles Times, California.     CHECK IT OUT

"Potential environmental risks aren't part of chemical engineers' training. Chemists and chemical engineers have been taught everything they need to know about how to synthesize a substance or trigger a reaction. Yet most don't know the effects of chemicals on people or the environment." Los Angeles Times, California.    CHECK IT OUT
