Alfa Laval Group's Black and Grey List

An important part of managing the Alfa Laval Group's environmental impact is the control of hazardous substances in purchased articles (products, spare parts, components, materials, preparations), production processes and packaging materials.  

Alfa LavalĀ“s Black and Grey list compiles substances that are:

  • Banned - Completely prohibited
  • Restricted - Prohibited in certain applications
  • Substances of Concern - Monitored substances

The list is valid to our suppliers, producers, importers and traders. The list is updated annually to reflect any legislative changes.

If an article contains substances of the Black and Grey list, you must immediately inform your purchaser contact at Alfa Laval.

Alfa Laval has produced a Search Tool which is a help to search the Black and Grey list for your chemicals' CAS and/or EC numbers. This is a great help if you have a list of chemicals you need to check. Note, not all substances in the list have specific identity numbers such as CAS or EC numbers thus are not searchable with the tool. 

The Black and Grey List is, on request, available as an excel version. The excel version is an uncontrolled document containing only the chemical lists of the Black and Grey List (frontpages and footnotes are not included).
