Solvent Transfer—Efficiency of Risk Management Measures
This paper determines what airborne protection is needed to transfer volatile solvents in a workplace. The proposed measures enable to reduce the average emissions by over 90%.
What are solvents?
This Factsheet explains how solvents make it possible to process, apply, clean or separate materials.
Safe loading and transportation of bulk solvents by road
Designed to support hauliers, drivers and site operators, this short film encourages best practices in the transport of solvents and bulk transfer between vehicles and storage vessels.
Solvents & the environment
This fact sheet shows how the solvents industry has implemented measures to address concerns about environmental performance and has worked with industry partners, scientists and legislators to further explore the need and the means to improve air quality in a cost-effective manner.
Solvents & Ozone
This fact sheet shows what part the solvents industry plays in reducing ozone peaks and how it has substantially reduced its emissions to contribute to air quality in Europe.
VOCs and Indoor Air Quality
This September 2017 technical position paper shows the industry’s commitment to reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and improving indoor air quality.
RCP for setting occupational exposure limits for hydrocarbon solvents
This paper from July 2017 provides an update on the application of the reciprocal calculation procedure (RCP) method to calculate occupational exposure levels for hydrocarbon solvents taking into account recent toxicological information and changes in regulatory requirements.
