Ethanol

A speciality of REACHsupport.eu

Ethanol is unique! In the form of alcoholic beverages, it is drunk for pleasure by billions of people but is also an industrial chemical. Because of the consumption of alcoholic beverages, there are considerably more hazard data on ethanol, especially on humans, than on any other chemical.


This is a substance for which there are a large number of end uses, covering a great diversity of market sectors.  Equally there are many producers, and importers, from those who produce 500,000 tonnes each year, down to those producing a few tonnes only.  This was reflected in the many companies pre-registering ethanol for REACH – almost 3500.

Due to our particular expertise and background in this product, we can offer a particularly impressive service for those companies seeking to register ethanol. Both Chemsage and DCL have a long track record, more than 20 years, of involvement in ethanol.  Consequently, we have a great deal of experience in all aspects of this special product:
