Solution :-

The production process uses the existing knowledge that we have on the principles of chemistry to create, develop and implement chemical compounds and products to decrease the number of hazardous substances in the environment. Green chemistry aims to make sure that the end products yield is 100% so that there are no harmful substances released into the environment. For example, we now use H2O2 instead of tetrachloroethane and chlorine gas in the process of bleaching and drying of paper.
