In today’s world there is increasing interest in sustainable industrial production. The search for waste-free production and the changing of production and consumption patterns are considered the most important paths for raising the sustainability of the production of goods and services. One of the keys to making this transition possible is the introduction of innovative and sustainable business models.

The leasing of chemicals is one such innovative business model. With Chemical Leasing, a supplier of chemicals proposes a substance / chemical product for a well-determined application and guarantees a result in accordance with the specific requirements of a customer. The supplier is paid for the service delivered rather than the amount of substance used.

This project called “Take Back Chemicals” aims at elaborating the business model including the economic,environmental, organizational, legislation and juridical effects of a chemical leasing-based business model by applying it to 5 cases in close cooperation with industrial partners.
