What's the difference between ZDHC Chemical Gateway and CleanChain?

ZDHC CHEMICAL GATEWAY is the world’s largest directory of formulations submitted by formulators. Gateway is open-source and constantly updated with new product conformance information. Suppliers can manually look up their formulations to determine the conformance level to the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL), e.g. Level 0, 1, 2, or 3.

CLEANCHAIN is a more holistic chemical inventory management and communication solution. Once your inventory is uploaded, it is automatically matched against the ZDHC Gateway library, as well as ADEC Innovations’ product database. You can then manage your inventory and see your facility's conformance against standards like the ZDHC MRSL. In addition, you can use CleanChain to connect to your customers, so they can see your facility's progress and communicate with you on topics such as conformance.

What languages does CleanChain support?

  • English

If I am connected to two different customers in CleanChain, can each customer see that I supply to the other?

No, permission and access can only be granted down the supply chain. Your customers will never see who else you supply to. You are also not able to see your customers’ data.

Where does CleanChain get certification and chemical conformance information?

CleanChain has a formulation database that is continuously being updated with inputs from various sources including the ZDHC Gateway, an open directory of chemical formulation conformance information; information directly from chemical manufacturers; and the like. CleanChain then systematically matches the chemical delivery and inventory data entered by suppliers against the different data sources compiled as part of our formulation database to determine your overall chemical conformance levels.
