Greener Processes

This review is dedicated to ecocatalysis, a concept developed by the Grison group aiming at combining ecology and green chemistry, which could be the vector of sustainable development based on the principle of circular economy. Within this objective, the Grison group has relied on using remediation phytotechnologies, such as phytoextraction, rhizofiltration, and biosorption. These solutions inspired by Nature generate a novel type of biomass, which has become a source of innovation in catalytic chemistry, called ecocatalysis.
