Green book

In 1997 the European Commission contracted five European research and development organizations to analyze problems related to the impact of PVC application to natural environments and related hazard to human health. Reports on the investigations have been collected together and a single document was eventually produced (so called PVC Green Book) that contains basic rules for dealing with plastics in future. It is worth to note that the document mentions the Ca-Zn technology as the only alterative to application of harmful cadmium and lead.
