CHEMCHAIN

Blockchain platform to track chemicals along the value chain

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 875783.
 

WHAT IS CHEMCHAIN?

ChemChain is a open-source global blockchain platform to transfer information on hazardous chemicals along the value chain, from chemical manufacturers to consumers, recyclers and waste operators.

ChemChain tokens represent quantities of chemicals. They carry chemical information and accumulate knowledge on uses and applications.
