Chemical Leasing for companies in 3 Steps

These guidelines present a step-by-step approach to preparing and implementing the Chemical Leasing business model and optimizing the use of chemicals in a company’s production process. Chemical Leasing increases the efficiency and effectiveness of chemicals by combining the knowledge and experience of the chemical user with the know-how of the chemical supplier. The result should be a win-win situation with economic benefits for both partners, and with environmental and health benefits for the chemical user.
