Diversely from other environmental impacts, ecotoxicity goes unnoticed many times. It is only when a chemical substance cause a change on organisms that it becomes somehow visible. Substances such as pesticides, chemical products, cosmetics and even food can provoke nasty effects with a repeated use or application.
Companies can indeed prevent such risks, putting in place metrics for the toxicity of chemical compounds used in production processes. The Toxicity Footprint, with USETox, may indicate which option is more harmful to people, providing orientation for conceiving new formulas. ACV Brasil owns an exclusive technique to compile these impacts.
