Next Generation Environmental Technologies (NGETs) focus on the redesign, at the molecular level, of manufacturing processes and products, with the aim of reducing or eliminating the use of hazardous materials. This report examines the research, development, and commercialization of NGETs, many derived from "green chemistry." The report also assesses benefits of NGETs and outlines ways to reduce barriers to their development and implementation. In addition to the main report, an appendix examines 25 case studies of NGETs that span a range of development, from early research to full use in profitable businesses. The authors find that, although green chemistry can be a powerful source of environmentally and economically beneficial technologies, the development of these NGETs is still in its infancy; substantial work is needed to create new NGETs and to encourage their use
