Free the furniture - non-toxic materials a must for circular transition

Many furniture in our homes, in our workplaces and in public environments contain chemicals with properties that are harmful to health and the environment. Add to that the fact that we are facing a circular transition, where materials must be able to be reused over and over again which places new demands on non-toxic material flows. It's time to free the furniture from of unwanted chemicals!

On 19 May, the Swedish Centre for Chemical Substitution at RISE invites the Swedish furniture industry to a digital event on the theme: Free the furniture - non-toxic materials a must for circular transition.
The event will be held in Swedish.
