To Tackle Commodity Contamination

Published 17th December 2018

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.

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.
