Removing Green Screen

I have a new customer who sent me a few hundred images which one of his employees shot against a green background. It would be easy enough to remove the background, but the green is reflecting on lighter colored products (Like a gray sweatshirt) and some of the pictures are of transparent items, (like a clear, plastic cup, or a product in a clear, plastic bag).

He claims that Photoshop (Which he admitedly knows nothing about) has a "Chroma Green Remover" - You just wave your magic wand and the green disappears. He also claims that he used to send his images "overseas" to have this done and they came back in a matter of an hour or two.

I have been using Photoshop since version 3.5 and have never heard of such a technique (Using CS3 now). Is there a way to do this, or should I have him re-shoot the pics?

If it was a solid object it would be rather easy using a variety of methods, but on a transparent object it isn't going to work since the object is green as well.

Green chroma key is an after effects plugin and yes you can load up a photo and do it in after effects however After effects is memory heavy so doing a few hundred images will take forever.
