Initiative Vinyl 2010
VINYL 2010 is a voluntary initiative of PVC manufacturers in Europe that brings together all the players of the production chain involved in manufacturing of mixtures for extrusion moulding of PVC profiles. The initiative gathers fabricators of PVC itself, but also related components as stabilizers of fillers. All they took the voluntary decision to reduce application of materials that are harmful for human health. According to that decision consumption of lead should be halved by 2010 as compared to the level of 2000 and by 2015 lead-based components should be totally eliminated from PVC manufacturing process in Europe.
