EU solvent emissions website launched
The European Commission has launched an information website to help solvent producers and users comply with the 1998 directive on volatile organic compound emissions from industrial solvents use (EED 26/03/98). Developed by the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, the site is claimed to be the first specifically designed to assist implementation of an EU environmental directive. It has been created to facilitate information exchange on solvent management plans as required by the law. See press release and the website.
