Good metallic properties and non-toxic constituents are important in circular material flows. However, the substitution of substances can affect the metallic properties. We can help you with simulations, knowledge of the impact of process chemicals, and find alternatives with regard to design, process, quality and sustainability.
Alloys and manufacturing processes may include heavy metals or other hazardous substances, which need to be phased out in order to reduce the adverse impact on people and the environment. The substitution of hazardous substances is also important for the materials to fit in circular flows and thereby increase their service life. Replacing elements or additives in alloys and manufacturing processes may require work processes to be modified in order to maintain or improve the required metallic properties.
RISE’s experts have broad expertise in the entire field and can offer complete solutions or help with specific issues.

Substitution means that you:
