Green solvents remain solvents from a VOC perspective but they can bring HS&E benefits

SpecialChem / Jul 6, 2010

Everyone in the world is looking for greener, bio-based or sustainable chemistries to replace petro-chemical based products. In trying to reduce the environmental impact of coatings, the industry has really focused on eliminating VOC and HAPS from the coating formulation. However when looking at the longevity of the product life cycle of solvents, we are still far from a dead product. In lot’s of applications the only solution is still to work with solvent containing systems. The interesting challenge in front of us is to make use of the most sustainable solutions possible and this is why we asked for your feedback on what you consider the most critical product attribute that, when improved on, could significantly enhance the sustainability of the solvent of choice.
