Current Baltic Breakfast
26 October: Essential use and substitution of hazardous chemicals
In this webinar we will discuss the concept of essential use and substitution of hazardous chemicals, and how these strategies can provide a safer and more sustainable use of chemicals. In more detail, we will focus on the application of the essential use concept by presenting different examples.
The webinar will also highlight some examples from the ongoing work in the POPFREE project that has an important role in helping the industry to phase out non-essential uses of PFAS, as well as informing the public.
