Environmental Protection

Regulatory Compliance & Product Stewardship
Compliance with chemical regulations is an essential part of our business. Sabo's products are compliant with REACH (EC 1907/2006) and also national chemical regulations throughout the world. Within REACH, we are also active in industry consortia to register specific chemical families including light stabilizers and antioxidants (LiSAO) and fatty acid based surfactants (FEUC).
