Putting New Products to the Test

As part of our sustainable business practices, we evaluate potential new products for sustainability. To meet our criteria, new products must strive to generate savings in energy, greenhouse gas, water, or waste during production or customer use; contain increased renewable material; be more recyclable; and/or present less risk.

Product Stewardship

Product Stewardship touches the full life cycle of a product including sourcing, manufacturing, packaging, hazard communication (safety data sheets and labels), new product development including registrations and toxicology testing, transportation, supporting our customers’ regulatory and sustainability/market-driven needs, and regulatory monitoring to understand the impact to our current or future products.

 

Product stewardship is a cornerstone of our corporate sustainability mission. Key to this mission is the sustainable development of products that not only meet customers' needs, but also follow the guidelines of green manufacturing practices.

 

For more than 20 years we have been contributing to scientific research to improve health and environmental safety for the entire life cycle of our products. We also have continued to lead the development of industry standards and test methodologies, actively participate in scientific forums and initiate hands-on educational efforts with our customers, partners and communities.

REACH – The EU Chemicals Regulation

REACH (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006) is the chemicals regulation of the European Union (EU), valid in the EU member states as well as in the European Economic Area (EEA).

 

REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. It entered into force on June 1, 2007 and aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests performed on animals.

 

With certain exceptions, companies in the EEA that manufacture or import more than one ton per year of a chemical substance must register that substance with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) by a specified deadline. In order to register substances companies need to work together with other companies who are registering the same substance.

 

Momentive's REACH Activities

Momentive is dedicated and fully committed to the successful implementation of the goals of the REACH regulation as well as continued, uninterrupted supply to our customers.

 

Accordingly, we conduct the required testing and assessment of our chemicals, actively participate in REACH registration consortia, cooperate with competent authorities and communicate with suppliers and customers. We identify and manage the risks linked to the substances we manufacture, import and sell in the EEA and communicate appropriate risk management measures to our customers.

 

More Information on REACH

To obtain Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for our products or extended Safety Data Sheets (eSDS) for registered substances, please visit the SDS Page of our website. For SDSs that are not available here, as well as statements on substances that the EU has identified as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC), please contact our Customer Service Team.

Sustainable Chemistry & Manufacturing

Momentive is guided by the principles of green chemistry. Sustainable chemistry, or green chemistry, is the practice of producing chemicals in ways that are environmentally sound are safe and result in fewer human and environmental consequences. When assessing environmental sustainability, we consider each product's life cycle components, including design, manufacturing and use. Our chemists are constantly devising new ways to decrease consumption of materials and energy while reducing waste - a long-standing initiative that remains central to our commitment to sustainability.

To embrace sustainability is to likewise embrace operational excellence. That’s why each of our facilities tracks the resources it uses and the wastes that it generates, including greenhouse gases (GHGs). Along the way, we look for ways to enhance efficiencies and improve operational excellence, and share advancements and success metrics with our global network. Additionally, we look for opportunities to recycle and reuse our water, lessening the overall volume of clean water needed as well as wastewater generated.
