Record number of eco-label compliant colourants, optical brighteners and chemicals for paper


Archroma has recently completed a new «eco-assessment» of its product portfolio aimed for paper, packaging and tissue. For newly developed products Archroma takes the necessary steps to verify that the requirements of the three major eco-labels – EU Ecolabel, Nordic Swan and Blue Angel – are being met.

As a leading producer of paper colourants, optical brightening agents and paper chemicals, Archroma conducted its portfolio assessment with a focus towards verifying its products’ compliance with those requirements. Archroma is also well under way with Phases 3 and 4 of its registration for Reach (the Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals). Most recently, Archroma’s newly launched food-contact-approved dye Cartasol Yellow 2GFC liquid has been shown to fulfil the requirements of both EU Ecolabel and Blue Angel. It has also been approved by Nordic Swan and included in their database.
