Scientists from Sweden, Egypt, Denmark and India have collaborated to develop a computational tool to assess the greenness of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) methods.
The HPLC-EAT software can be downloaded free of charge at http://www.biotek.lu.se/hplc-eat/ and can also be combined with another free software eco-solvent tool to perform life cycle assessments of waste disposal options (such as distillation or incineration).
