Online Marketplace Opened for Safer Alternative Chemicals. Many countries and regions, especially the European Union, create the need to find safer alternatives for various substances that the industrialist uses in production or puts on the market, with legal regulations. Finding safe alternatives takes time, effort and commitment. The increasing awareness and demand of consumers and non-governmental organizations has also increased the demand for safer alternatives and the commercial advantage.
Swedish non-governmental organization ChemSec, developed a website with the aim of establishing a Marketplace for substances as an alternative to hazardous chemicals.
ChemSec's Marketplace aims to provide information on safer alternatives in an easily categorized and searchable way and those looking for safe chemicals It is the first website to offer services in the business environment.
“Our goal is not only to provide a market opportunity for manufacturers of safer alternatives, but also to be a one-stop shopping center for downstream users who want to replace hazardous chemicals in their products,” explains Anna Lennquist, ChemSec's toxicology expert and market manager. On the site, filters can be applied for sector-specific alternatives or search can be made with certain keywords.
