Chemical statistics have been updated for 2009

11 November 2011

The Swedish Chemical Agency´s flow analyses containing statistics of chemical substances that have been imported, manufactured or exported have been updated with figures from 2009. The flow analyses also contain facts on how the production took place and physical data. Answers are given to questions like: Is terpentine manufactured in Sweden? In what products is acetic acid used? Are nonylphenol etoxilates included in many consumer products?

- The flow analyses for 2009 show that many substances are used in lesser amounts than when the previous analysis was made. It seems as if the Swedish market was largely affected by the recession in 2009, says Margareta Östman at the Swedish Chemical Agency´s Products Register.

Flow analyses of chemical substances are part of Sweden´s official statistics, mainly based on data derived from the Products Register.
