All stages of the life cycle of a product or process may adversely affect the environment by using up limited resources of materials and energy or by creating waste. Any substitution or change that reduces consumption of materials and energy and production of waste – including, for example, recycling of materials and energy – may be regarded as more environmentally friendly or ‘‘clean’’. Clean technology may also be equated with reduced risk.
By drawing a line at the time in the late 1950s and early 1960s when the structure and function of nucleic acids were being discovered, it is possible to distinguish between the earlier, traditional biotechnology of bread and wine making, for example, and second generation biotechnology which, in part, makes use of recombinant DNA technology. It must be stressed, however, that biotechnology is wider than genetic engineering and draws heavily upon process technology, chemistry and classical engineering
