The project describes a concept for the qualitative evaluation of biocide-free alternatives using comprehensible criteria. Using concrete examples, biocide-free alternatives are compared with biocides in terms of their usefulness and competitiveness. Biocide-free alternatives have a high potential for reducing the use of biocides, but are usually not subject to an evaluation process, which reduces their acceptance. A technical assessment is intended to promote the acceptance of alternatives and their use instead of biocides. A positive evaluation is a prerequisite for an official recommendation of these alternatives e.g. B. via the UBA biocide portal , which supports the obligation to provide information in chemical law regarding alternative measures for the use of biocides.
