The development and application of green chemistry and engineering principles in the academic, industrial, and government sectors should be explored to promote sustainability and the added value of products. Innovations in the chemical design and development of new material products, such as waste-to-energy (alternative energy), composting, anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis and gasification, material recycling, and modeling in processes that lead to sustainable practices, are essential to achieving a safe and clean environment. The green synthesis of nanoparticles and the utilization of waste have gained significance in recent years because of their advanced uses in the biomedical, chemical, energy, and materials fields, to name a few. Many studies have focused on green chemistry for the development of new products, including biofuel as an alternative and renewable form of energy. Physical characteristics, the materials used, the technique involved, configuration, and position parameters play a crucial role in reaching the optimum process in the production of nanoparticles, composites, and bioenergy for tropical environment applications. A clean environment and clean technologies can be achieved through the use of a chemical design process that minimizes waste and improves product performance. In addition, the utilization of raw materials from secondary resources or material recycling may have good environmental effects. Improving the design and process to create a new product in such a way that they meet sustainable and green requirements is also needed.
