ZDHC unveils Chemical Gateway tool for chemical management

Nov '16
The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) has launched the new ZDHC Chemical Gateway tool for chemical management within the textile and footwear value chain, designed to indicate conformance to the ZDHC MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List), that addresses hazardous substances potentially used and discharged into the environment.

ZDHC MRSL is a list of chemical substances banned from intentional use in facilities that process textile materials and trim parts in apparel and footwear

According to ZDHC's technical director Scott Echols, today, the focus at ZDHC is to ease regulatory confusion of chemical management standards and bring different actors together - brands, chemical companies, mills and manufacturers - to align on common standards and tools.

While the creation of the ZDHC MRSL was hailed as an industry milestone, one of the challenges suppliers still face in working to conform to this standard is knowing where to go, and who to trust, when it comes to safer chemistry claims.

The ZDHC Chemical Gateway builds on the ZDHC MRSL by providing a “positive list” of safer chemical formulations. Conformance is determined by third-party product accreditation standards and options available in the market.

ZDHC is set to showcase the new tool at the 4th ZDHC-CNTAC Conference on Hazardous Chemical Control & Sustainable Manufacturing, to be held on November 8, 2016 in Shanghai, China.

The Chemical Gateway will be available to the public in early 2017. (GK)
