The aim of the project is to integrate the feedback from testing the guide for the selection of sustainable chemicals in a revised version and to develop an IT-tool to support and enhance its use.
Several chapters of the guide for the selection of sustainable chemicals were revised and complemented with new information. The assessment of the sustainability of substances based on the substance-based criteria was programmed as IT-tool, which is available on the website of the Umweltbundesamt. In addition, a method was developed to assess and compare the sustainability for mixtures using the substance-based criteria and also implemented in the IT-tool. The assessment of substances and mixtures using the application-based criteria was not part of the project.
The project results are a revised guide and an IT-tool for the assessment and comparison of the sustainability of substances and mixtures.
