Why substitute?

Why substitute?

There are many reasons why companies or other organisations may look to substitute a chemical, such as improving the environmental footprint of their products or manufacturing processes, providing a better technical functionality or responding to client demands or legal requirements. As part of these development efforts, it is important to look to reduce the potential risks caused by the substances that are used. Several substitution options should be considered: switching to a less hazardous chemical, using an alternative technique or creating a different product design. In practice, it is usually a combination of these actions that leads to success. Often, these actions improve production efficiency, drive innovation, help companies to gain a competitive advantage and save costs, and ultimately benefit human health and the environment.
