REACH

Novozymes welcomes REACH. In essence it reflects Novozymes’ business strategy, where Novozymes strives to substitute highly dangerous chemicals with sustainable enzymatic or biological solutions, while ensuring safety of use.

According to the new EU legislation, REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals), all EU based manufacturers and importers of chemicals are required to register chemicals that are manufactured or imported in yearly tonnages exceeding a certain level.
 
Novozymes’ technical enzymes (used for detergent, leather, special tech, forestry, textile, fuel ethanol etc.) are regarded as chemicals and are therefore subject to the REACH registration. The incentive behind REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.
