Sweden to help SMEs replace hazardous chemicals

The Swedish government is to set up a chemical substitution centre at the state-owned RISE research centre in Borås to help smaller companies to replace hazardous chemicals in products.

The centre is designed to function as an independent node between companies, organisations, industries, academia, institutes and authorities. Borås is home to Sweden’s textile industry, where hazardous chemicals are widely used.

Some large companies have already developed expertise in chemicals, and the new centre will facilitate cooperation and information sharing, including on alternative substances and non-chemical methods and techniques.
