Removing phosphates in detergents
Date du début: 31 déc. 2009, Date de fin: 30 déc. 2011 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The aim of the project is to support Baltic Sea Region countries in implementing HELCOM Recommendation 28E/7, e.g. national legislative action to limit the use of phosphates in laundry detergents and automatic dishwasher detergents. Achievements: This was accomplished by the production of information material to policy-makers. An EU-wide ban on phosphates in laundry detergents was adopted in 2011. So far, an information leaflet has been produced to provide decision-makers with some answers to frequently asked questions that highlight the possibilities and proportionality of implementing the HELCOM Recommendations. The information leaflet has been made available in both English and Russian (see– choose publications then brochures and leaflets). The English version of the document has been published on various websites, such as those of HELCOM, Priority Area 1 and the Swedish Chemicals Agency. More information is available under:
