Substitution of Hazardous Substances – Alternatives Identification and Assessment Training

The search for substitutes for hazardous materials and the assessment of the alternative substances are key steps of a substitution process and are the focus of this training. Guided by experienced trainers you will learn interactively in small groups about basic concepts and tools, which will be applied to practical examples. The training will be held in German.

Where: Kooperationsstelle Hamburg IFE GmbH, Humboldtstraße 67a, 22767 Hamburg
When: 20 March 2014, 9:00 – 17:00

The following instruments are introduced during the seminar:

  • SUBSPORT – the Substitution Support Portal
  • The TRGS 600 ‘substitution’ is the technical rule valid nowadays in Germany. It specifies the subsitution rules according to the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances.
  • The Column Model is an easy method to check whether a chemical which you want to use is less dangerous than a chemical which is already used.
  • Green Screen is a more comprehensive assessment tool, which you already need for important clients or regions, or which you might need in the future.
