Additional information

Due to the manufacturing process AKD is not expected to be emitted from the production and formulation of AKD. The only recipient for AKD dispersions is the pulp and paper industry. The faith of AKD over the entire paper making process has been described by Schultz in Das Papier (1997). The main conclusion is that releases of AKD are not anticipated neither from the paper making process, nor from paper recycling.
