GLRPPR Sector Resource: Bisphenol A Alternatives in Thermal Paper
Bisphenol A Alternatives in Thermal Paper
This report provides information on bisphenol A (BPA), its use in thermal paper, and possible substitutes for this use. The report was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with input from stakeholders from business, government, academia, and environmental organizations. Based on conversations with technical experts, including stakeholders, we identified nineteen alternatives that are potential functional substitutes for inclusion and assessment. In addition to information on potential hazards of BPA and possible substitutes, information on the trade-offs associated with each alternative is presented for consideration in substitution decision-making.
