#Quote

‘We managed to turn this project into a way to identify solutions for more effective natural resources management, development of renewable energy as well as reduction of the impact of industry on the environment. But these are the tactical objectives. The strategic objective of green chemistry research is global, and it is to support the well-being of future generations.’

Andrey Guryev, member of the Commission of the Russian Federation for UNESCO and PhosAgro CEO
