As a result of their nature to elicit adverse human health effects, most governments have established guidelines for exposure to BTEX chemicals to protect public health and the environment. Safe concentrations in air and drinking water have been established. For example, the US EPA has established permissible levels for chemical contaminants in drinking water. The Australian Environmental Protection (Air) Policy specifies guideline values for BTEX chemicals in air.
Due to the growing concern of BTEX releases to the environment and their adverse health effects, many Oil and Gas companies are looking to replace BTEX ingredients in their formulations. CRODA offers a range of products that are BTEX free.
