Green Chemistry Assessment Tool

From the R&D phase to commercial production, Danisco  scientists use our proprietary Green Chemistry Assessment Tool to quantitatively score the overall sustainability of our ingredient catalog, products and processes. We developed and implemented this tool to meet the development needs of Danisco’s flavor, fragrance, and encapsulated products, using our own standardized scoring system for a set of key green chemistry principles.

In addition to improving the culture of “green thinking” at Danisco, the assessment tool is helping to facilitate significant reductions of waste, more efficient use of resources, greater energy efficiency and improved worker safety, among other benefits. In short, this approach is allowing for a systematic and structured approach toward more sustainable products and processes at Danisco.
