Keywords: cationic photopolymerization | radical photopolymerization | photoinitiators | visible light sources | soft irradiation conditions | sunlight exposure | LED | laser diodes | household lamps | halogen lamps | renewable monomers

The present paper reviews some aspects concerned with the development of green technologies in the photopolymerization area: use of visible light sources (Xe and Hg-Xe lamps, diode lasers), soft irradiation conditions (household lamps: halogen lamp, fluorescence bulbs, LED bulbs), sunlight exposure, development of very efficient photoinitiating systems and use of renewable monomers. The drawbacks/breakthroughs encountered when going on the way of a greener approach are discussed. Examples of recent achievements are presented.
