Clean technologies

Clean technologies are defined as technologies developed by scientists and engineers that enable a more efficient use of natural resources and greatly reduce the particular technology’s ecological impact. The concept of clean technologies embraces a broad range of products, services, and processes that provide superior performance at lower costs and significantly reduce or eliminate environmental ill-effects.

Clean technologies span many industries, from alternative forms of energy generation to water purification to materials-efficient production techniques.
