The objective of the LIFE SENSSEI project is to reduce its impact on the environment and, especially, on the health of workers resulting from the presence of formaldehyde in industry. For this, a new formaldehyde in air detection and determination system is going to be developed based on fibre optics. The system will allow the characteristics and performance of the current formaldehyde in air measurement methods to be improved and to give results continuously in real time.
FORMACARE, el grupo del sector de formaldehído del Consejo Europeo de la Industria Química (Cefic), ha publicado los primeros resultados de su Acuerdo Voluntario para proteger la salud de los trabajadores de la exposición al formaldehído.
Alemania exigirá a partir de 2020 una reducción de la emisión de formaldehído de los tableros derivados de la madera y el mobiliario de un 50% respecto a lo permitido actualmente. Canadá también establecerá nuevos requisitos.

LIFE SENSSEI - FORMALDEHYDE SENSOR SYSTEM FOR SAFE ENVIRONMENTS IN THE INDUSTRY.
Formaldehyde is a carcinogenic compound used in the manufacture of resins and adhesives for the treatment of wood products, pulp, paper, glass wool and rock, and for the finishing of plastics and coatings, textiles and insulation. It is also used as a disinfectant and preservative, and as a precursor and industrial additive. As a hazardous substance, the use of formaldehyde is strictly controlled. Formaldehyde is classified in the EU as a carcinogen.
