The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) just posted a request on Marketplace. Why? One company has submitted an Application for Authorisation to ECHA in order to allow continued use of Trichloroethylene in the extraction process of caprolactam. The legislation states that an authorisation should only be granted if there are no safer alternatives available. ECHA is therefore reaching out to solution providers here on Marketplace, urging them to submit information about their alternatives.
What do Marketplace users think of the platform and how is it being used? Here are some hard numbers to answer those questions.
