If a chemical or chemicals can help make cars reduce fuel consumption and carbon emission; help create cheaper fuel cells or solar panels; or make existing or new sources of water drinkable, does this mean the chemical or chemicals can be categorized as green?

Even if they are not made from plants, bacteria or other natural/renewable-based feedstock, or that they are not biodegradable or recyclable?

Lanxess likes to think so if the said chemical/s are also eco-friendly, safe and are manufactured in an environmentally-conscious production processes.
