Industrial and Specialty Chemicals are a vital part of the economy as they serve as building blocks for many consumer, agricultural and manufacturing products. However, they also have a diverse set of regulations—including the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and many other regulatory programs. Often these types of chemicals are evaluated by determining their Persistence, Bioaccumulation and Toxicity (PBT) potential. This evaluation can be confounded when a substance exhibits properties of a “Difficult to Test” substance (e.g. mixture, hydrophobic, low water solubility).
Waterborne can help you handle, test and assess these types of substances to guide your company through a complex system. Our staff—who have been very involved in evaluating current and alternative methods for the bioaccumulation assessment of chemicals, as well as in a recent USEPA sponsored Difficult to Test Substances workshop—will walk you through every step.
