Another example is the use of solvents. Contaminated solvent from one part of the process may still be good enough for another part of the plant, and the overall generation of the contaminated solvent can be reduced by properly identifying the solvent needs of the entire plant. In-process recycling refers to the reuse of unreacted materials (after suitable puriﬁcation) in the same process. Chemical reactions, for example, cannot always be driven to completion due to thermodynamic limitations. In such cases, one needs to separate the product from the unconverted raw material, the latter ending up as a waste stream.
Today many of us still have difﬁculty accepting the premise that a seldom-seen plant or animal might play a part in the global ecosystem that is every bit as crucial as our own. Activists continue to press for a wider appreciation of the complexities that abound in environmental science, even as the scientists continue to struggle with those complexities. For better and for worse, therefore, a great deal of the thinking of environmental activists has now entered the social and cultural mainstream.
And as the political atmosphere of the 1980s began to wear down the environmental movement, he was joined by others.
