ToxEraser Solvents
VERMEER Solvents
April 10, 2022
Within the EC funded LIFE project VERMEER, a new software system was develop with the aim to identify risky solvents and suggest safer alternatives as remedy.

This strategy allows to improve the environmental sustainability and the health of workers and consumers, providing forward-looking approaches in line with the green chemistry paradigm.

The software, freely available, allows to find greener solvents by exploiting the information provided by an archive of data which take into account safety, health and environmental criteria.

ToxEraser Solvents uses different lists retrieved from different publicly sources. The judgements provided by each list for each item were merged into a single global judgement, to obtain a final meta-classification where solvents can be found ordered according to a rank of safety. A read-across analysis enforces the substitution process, making the substitution possible even when the ingredient is not included in the archive.
