Generic Exposure Scenarios
Generic exposure scenarios (GESs) are an efficient way of representing the vast majority of impacts of substance uses on workers, consumers and the environment and describe how exposure can be controlled.
ESIG Human Exposure Database
The ESIG database contains detailed information and measurements from the literature on solvents exposure that have been published since 1998 including a quality assessment.
Safe Use of Solvents
ESIG has developed a full range of materials (posters, best practice guides and films) called solvents@work explaining how to handle solvents safely.
Life Cycle Inventory Datasets
ESIG has developed cradle-to-gate life-cycle inventories to assure that a solid data base for solvent and facilitate the calculation of Product or Organisation Environmental Footprints (PEFs/OEFs).
Solvents VOC Emission Inventory
ESIG inventories are an acknowledged approach to report or compare data to emission inventories per country under the EU National Emission reduction Commitments Directive.
Vapour Pressure Tool
ESIG has developed a calculation tool to determine whether a hydrocarbon solvent is a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC).
Reciprocal Calculation Procedure
The Hydrocarbon Solvents Producers Association (HSPA) has developed a tool to calculate the occupational exposure limits taking into account the for complex and variable hydrocarbon solvents compositions.
Hydrocarbon Naming Convention
The Hydrocarbon Solvents Producers Association (HSPA) has developed a naming convention for hydrocarbon solvents based on the chemical composition of the substance to better fulfil the REACH specific emphasis on substance identification.
Bio-based Solvents Standard
The first product standard for bio-based materials published by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) contains bio-based solvent definitions and classes as well as test methods.
SQAS Safe Distribution
SQAS is Cefic’s voluntary system to assess health, safety and environmental standards of distributing operation including distribution of solvents.
