Project description

In this project, the chemistry value chain is aided in developing sustainable processes. All economical and ecological measuring methods for the evaluation of processes are inventoried. These measuring methods are tested with real cases and inserted into a selection tool which allows companies to select the measuring methods fitting best their specific needs.
