Sustainable Electrochemistry is an interdisciplinary field composed of Sustainable ("green") Chemistry, Nanotechnology and Electrochemistry. The goal is efficient utilization of electric energy for chemical processes as well as the reverse process, efficient conversion of energy from chemical processes into electrical energy. In those processes, sustainability and electro-catalysis play central roles.
