Green chemistry otherwise called as sustainable chemistry, which is part  of chemistry and chemical engineering focused in designing products and by minimizing the generation and use of hazardous substances .whereas, environmental chemistry focuses on the effects chemicals polluting the nature, green chemistry focuses on technological ways to prevent pollution and by reducing the consumption of non-renewable resources.

Catalysis is the defined as the substance which only alters the rate of the reaction without changing is nature. In order to achieve objectives of the Green chemistry, catalysis plays a fundamental role. Main goal of green chemistry is to provide an eco-friendly, reusable, recyclable and minimum waste production and green catalysis designs the chemical products in a way that reduce or eliminates the use and generation of hazardous substances.

Green nanotechnology has a significant effect on developing 'green' and 'clean' technologies with significant environmental benefits. The two main goals of this technology is to produce nanomaterial and Nano products by using the principle of green chemistry and green engineering, without any toxic ingredients, at low temperatures using less energy. Development in Nanocatalysts is one of the most advance and latest research in Nanotechnology as it has proved to be highly fruitful in catalysis technology as nanomaterial have high surface area and any material behave differently in Nano state and this characteristics are utilized for the design of Nanocatalysts.

Isolation and recovery of green Nanocatalysts is one of the biggest issues in modern days and research is still going on. To overcome this problem magnetic nanoparticle has immerged as they are insoluble and paramagnetic in nature which makes easy and efficient in separation of the catalyst.

In a synthesis of a target molecule, under appropriate conditions the starting materials is made to react with a reagent. Until the final result all the possible methods are considered that can give the desired product. The same product can also be obtained by modifying the conditions. The method of choice should eliminate the use of toxic materials and avoid waste materials and by products. Most synthesis use petrochemicals which are a non-renewable energy use of alternative like agricultural biological origin eg; corn, potatoes, soya are transformed through various processes into textiles and nylon.

Biocatalysis is the main green chemistry technology which adopts its application by producing fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals with higher yield. Biocatalysis is the chemical process which uses biological or natural enzymes such as proteins or organic components. These enzymes are either isolated or reside inside the living cells. Biocatalysts are fast, consume less time and yield a high specific product.  The three major selectivities of biocatalysts are:

Today polymer technology plays a significant role in the society as the application of polymer products has become much important in our life. Issues such as extensive use of the non-renewable source of energy, application of reagents that are a concern to the environment, generation of waste and many other make scientists and researcher think for new innovation which is sustainable and environmental friendly in the polymerization process. The utilization of renewable energy and green chemistry techniques has enhanced the new successful ways in polymer technology.  Biodegradability of polymer materials is an auxiliary benefit of renewable polymers. Polymer manufactured by the biological system is essential biodegradable. Polymer science is not only applied for manufacturing a different variety of products but also it is utilized in the generation and saving of energy and at the same time it is improving renewable energy technology.

Green Chemistry is an important tool for the pharmaceutical industry to help achieve its environmental target while delivering economic benefits. The most simple and direct way to apply green chemistry in pharmaceuticals is to utilize eco-friendly, non-hazardous, reproducible and efficient solvents and catalysts in synthesis of drug molecules, drug intermediates and in researches involving synthetic chemistry. Biocatalysis is the main green chemistry technology adopted by the fine chemicals and pharmaceutical industries to manufacture chemicals at higher yield.

Catalysis is the key to sustainability. The application of catalysis is to reduce the toxicity and renewable energy systems, and efficiency makes it a great area of research in green chemistry. Green and sustainable catalysts possess high adaptability and highly effective catalytic performances are stable and less expensive when compare to the expensive metals catalysts. The recent development of catalysts in replacing the conventional ones made a significant reduction in environmental pollution. Some catalysts are Nanocatalysts, green catalysts and perovskite type catalysts are used in the advances oxidation processes.

Fuel cell is one of the tools for converting the sustainable energy sources like solar radiation, wind and biomass into usable form of energy. Fuel cells are the devices which convert chemical energy into one form or other because of the efficiency and ability to harvest energy from diverse source. The fuel cells are the one of the keys to sustainable power generation and are used in space shuttles to generate water and electricity required for the mission.  Green catalysis and fuel cell technology offers the opportunity to eliminate expanses by providing electricity in an efficient manner and make use of waste by-products which is produced in a treatment processes.

Application of Green chemistry and its application strongly support the development of greener concepts in process parameters, selection of compounds and resulting environmental aspects. Successful implementation of green chemistry research helps in analysing of new and existing green chemistry technologies are improving the environmental impacts of chemical products and processes with qualitative and quantitative benefits to the environment.

Green energy also referred as Renewable energy are the energy that that are originated  from natural sources such as sun, water, wind rain, waves, tides, plants, geothermal heat and many more. The energy generated from these resources is Clean, Varied, Renewable, Stable, and Inexpensive, which makes it more effective and demanding. The energy from these resources is utilised readily for purposes such as generating electricity, water heating, solar cooling, and a variety of commercial and industrial uses. The development in renewable energy technology has increased the efficiency of energy production by the renewable resources and at the same time it has also decreased the dependence on non-renewable sources like oil, gas, coal and utility which gets depleted with use.
