The project has collected the domestic and international chemical substance management guidelines and current status, the current status of green financial development, the introduction of incentives of chemical substances, the related literature, and then hosted an expert consultation meeting and a conference.
In addition, studies of industry structure and cost-benefit analysis required in this project have also been completed for two categories of industries in Taiwan that have the potential to promote green chemistry (including textiles, paints, dyes and pigments) and two types of food-related industries with green chemistry (including cleaning and cosmetics manufacturing, other plastics product manufacturing).
Site visits for a total of five pilot factories were conducted, including Taiwan Yongguang Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., Qingjing Haisheng Technology Co., Ltd., Maobao Co., Ltd., Oright International Co., Ltd., and AMIA CO., LTD. Feedback were obtained from the industries to assess the feasibility of the subsequent transformation and to provide input to the financial strategies of operational mechanisms for green chemistry. The Green Chemistry and Green Finance Conference were hosted to enable more companies to understand the current status and incentives available in Taiwan.
The accomplishments of the project included consolidation of relevant literature, conduct an inter-departmental meeting and expert consultation meetings, studies of industry analysis and feasibility assessment for transformation, and understanding of the safe use of chemicals and substances from pilot factories.
