Reduction of hazardous substances

Chemicals are an essential part of our everyday lives. At the same time, hazardous waste from chemical production continues to increase and poses a serious threat if not disposed of or treated in a appropriate manner. Illegal disposal of hazardous waste is also an important source of pollution.

Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway support one programme in this area in Romania. The programme help improve the country’s management of hazardous substances and compliance with EU legislation.
