To Tackle Commodity Contamination

The concept of commodity contamination is coming to light due to the potential of hazardous chemical contaminants being present in leather, textile and synthetic wastewaters. Wastewaters are potentially contaminated with hazardous substances such as APEO’s phthalates, chlorobenzene, toluene and other restricted chemicals.


The textile industry may be overlooking the problem of chemical contaminants because many of the chemical contaminants are by-products of commonly used chemicals such as salts, soda ash, organic and inorganic acids and more.


Chem-MAP can help with Chemical Contaminants

Manufacturers can benefit from using Chem-MAP approved chemical formulations in the production of raw materials and consumer products. Chem-MAP verified formulations will have been tested to the ZDHC MRSL and can reduce the number of chemical contaminants found in wastewater by testing all your chemicals that you are using within your supply chain. Find out more about how Chem-MAP works.

Chem-MAP: Cleaner Chemistry for a Safer World

Watch the Chem-MAP video to see how this new ZDHC approved MRSL verification programme is engaging all organisations in the leather, textile and synthetic materials supply chains to drive the use of responsible chemistry in the manufacture of consumer products.

Chem-MAP is a preventative system that protects businesses, workers, consumers and the environment, and rewards businesses that engage through certification, approved status, training and technical support. Chem-MAP offers three programmes which are specifically designed for chemical companies (c-MAP Programme), manufacturers (m-MAP Programme) and brands and retailers (b-MAP Programme).
