In mid-October, I will travel to Mumbai to speak at the 2019 Industrial Green Chemistry World (IGCW) convention organised by the Green ChemisTree Foundation. Its aim is to take the technical know-how of green chemistry out of the laboratories and into the factories. Since the goal of Marketplace is to gather all safer alternatives available on the market in one single place and connect supply with demand, it’s a perfect match.
Marketplace just reached 200 advertisements. For that reason, we thought we would share some numbers with you. Read this article written by our Business Developer Alice Hyllstam to find out who the buyers and suppliers are, where they’re located and what they’re interested in.

This car seat has had her share of bad relationships with endocrine disruptors and so on. Luckily, she tried ChemSec’s online meeting point – Marketplace – and found a match with a safer alternative to a toxic flame retardant. On Marketplace there are hundreds of safer alternatives to hazardous chemicals just waiting to hook up with products. Try it yourself!
Flame retardants might as well be called “Everywhere Chemicals” because they are found far and wide, really anywhere you look. In carpets, mattresses, upholstered furniture, computers, television sets, cables, walls, car seats, clothing, animals, humans – you name it.
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.
