Blockchain to keep track of hazardous chemicals
All along the supply chain – manufacturers, consumers and those handling recycling, require information about the chemical products they deal with. Unfortunately, the supply chain is long and difficult to track, creating an opportunity for time delays, added costs and human errors. The EU-funded ChemChain project supports the creation of an open-source global blockchain platform to transfer information on hazardous chemicals along the value chain. It involves decentralising and creating a trust layer blockchain infrastructure to safely store, exchange, build and track chemical-related information along the supply chain. This will eliminate delays, mistakes and costs, simplifying legal procedures. It will also let customers understand better the risks connected to specific chemicals and to avoid health and environmental threats.
