R&D investments support chemical substitution practice…but more help is needed


Today more and more R&D teams and manufacturing facilities are replacing substances of very high concern (SVHC) with safer ones that provide the same functionality in the final product.

The thinking behind this effort is that when less-hazardous chemicals can take the place of more dangerous ones, re-engineering the processes to minimize risk simply makes more sense.

In this white paper, you will learn more about the three main goals the industry must pursue to incorporate safer substitutes including that:

  • Regulators must expand infrastructure in order to better support substitution
  • R&D teams and other experts must collaborate to encourage substitution
  • Plant managers and other support personnel must implement substitution practices
