Global chemistry industry transparency

ICCA progresses towards global public database on plastics additives, including flame retardants. The International Council of Chemical Associations (which includes Cefic in Europe) is establishing an integrated public safety and sustainability data base for chemicals used in plastics formulation, so providing a tool to support plastics recycling and waste management. Information will initially include (from 2024): identification numbers and names, additive functions, application sectors and polymers, use tonnage estimates, regulatory registrations in different countries and determined hazard classifications where applicable. In a second stage information on health and environment properties, leaching and exposure will be added. ICCA underline the crucial role of technical additives in plastics to ensure durability and performance characteristics, also needed for sustainability (renewable energy, light-weighting).
