Huber On Schedule for REACH Registration for Silica

Filed under: Silica — Notch @ 12:46 am

Huber Engineered Materials issued a press release today reporting that, as a member of the Silica and Silicates Consortia, it has successfully registered synthetic amorphous silica with the European Chemicals Agency in Helsinki, Finland for the EU’s REACH chemical registration program.

According to the REACH chemicals regulation, which came into force in June 2007, existing substances –- substances already listed in the inventory under the old chemicals legislation –- had to be preregistered by Dec. 1, 2008, as a first step (as to achieve “phase-in” status). This was accomplished on schedule for all products of Huber’s silica business unit. The registration phase for substances handled in quantities of more than 1,000 metric tons per year ends in November 2010.

Here is the press release.
