The ETA supports the recent commentary on the use of 60 ng/m3 for the enzyme exposure limit as outlined in the March 2021 issue of the Journal of Pulmonary & Respiratory Sciences. This evidence-informed occupational airborne exposure limit has been successfully used by the enzyme manufacturing and detergent industry to protect workers . The authors (David Basketter1*, Nuria Moreno2 and Merete Simonsen) outline that risk management practices used in the enzyme manufacturing and detergent industry should be used in other industries and down stream enzyme users to successfully protect workers.

The Enzyme Technical Association (ETA) has recently launched a webpage highlighting the sustainability benefits of enzyme technology. Enzymes represent one of the leading “Green Chemistry” technologies that drive sustainable solutions in consumer products and industrial processes. Member companies of ETA produce innovative enzyme products used in a variety of industries and consumer products that provide sustainable solutions. The website covers specific examples on how the enzyme industry is applying enzyme technology to solve sustainability challenges such as: sustainable solutions in cleaning, reducing food waste, improving animal nutrition, reducing chemicals in textile processing, and in biofuels generation.
