Chemicals & hazardous materials
Balancing safety and sustainability
Chemicals are vital for aerospace and defence manufacturing and play a key role in our journey toward sustainability, including the development of sustainable aviation fuels.
While our industry acknowledges the potential harm of certain substances, and in strict adherence to national, EU and international regulations, we actively minimise their use.
ASD actively engages with EU stakeholders, including the European Chemicals Agency to ensure the specific needs and challenges of our industry are well-understood and considered in regulatory decision-making processes..
