Solvents Directive

The Solvent Emissions Directive 1999 is environmental legislation that applies to new processes now and to existing processes by October 2007. It is aimed at controlling volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and may lead to less commonly used solvents, including those with the potential to cause significant harm to people (e.g. inorganic solvents such as those based on fluoroborates), being more widely used.
