Can someone help me w/ this??

My chemistry teacher online is having us do this assignment. I've been looking up to see if I can find the answers to this but I cant seem to find it. I was wondering if anyone can help me find some information. If so I can use any of these topics(but only one):

automobile
cleaning
clothing manufacture
computer
construction
cosmetic
dental
farming
food preparation
food processing
fuel
law enforcement
medical
photography
software



Project

1. Identify chemical reactions upon which the industry relies.

2. Determine the role that each reaction plays in the industry.

3. How are the products of the reaction used by the industry?

4. What benefits does the process bring to the industry or to the larger society?

5. Obtain industry statistics regarding the annual consumption or production of the reaction species.

6. Has the industry made any recent advances that have chemical foundations?

7. Are there environmental concerns that arise as a result of the chemical processes?

8. Detail the nature of any environmental problems associated with the chemical processes.

9. What solutions and precautions are in place to prevent environmental accidents?

I'm sorry, but according to the rules, we can not help unless you first show some work. Please read the Guidelines again.
 
Well I kinda can't show work on this because it isn't a problem. Its questions that have to be researced. I've looked them up. I'm doing CLEANING but everything is basically based off the first question. I cant find the answer. Thats why I asked here so somebody can help me.

As an example (not intended to be complete):
Automobile: gasoline combustion, iron reduction from its mineral, carbon + iron to produce steel, monomer polymerization to produce plastics, ...

Every industry needs chemical reactions. From iron to semiconductors. Just choose one industry and one of the chemical reactions involved.

Okay, so if you've picked Cleaning as your topic, I suggest you search for "detergent chemistry". That should get you lots of good hits.
