  • The PVC value chain is engaged in the research and development of new formulations to ensure maximum safety and protection of the environment and the health of users and consumers. The VinylPlus commitment on sustainable use of additives, for example, resulted in the complete replacement of lead-based stabilisers in PVC applications in the EU-28 by the end of 2015, whilst European...
  • In a circular economy, the value of the products, materials and resources is kept as long as possible, the production of waste is minimised and innovation is at the centre of the entire value chain. As outlined by the European Commission, this can be achieved in various ways, for example: reducing the quantity of materials required to deliver a particular service...
