Akzo Nobel Surface Chemistry, ABB, Stora Enso and Chalmers
University of Technology conducted the DANTES project within the pro-active
environmental field. DANTES is an acronym for Demonstrate and Assess New Tools
for Environmental Sustainability. DANTES dealed mainly with environmental
activities that are usually characterized as voluntary rather than regulatory.
Half of the financing was covered by the
EU LIFE-Environment programme.
One of the project's goals was to assess and demonstrate tools such as Life Cycle
Assessment (LCA), Environmental Risk Assessment
(ERA) and Life Cycle Cost
DANTES also resulted in strategies for
evaluation based on
existing tools. Tools,
case study results and other findings
continuously disseminated through this web site and through several information
campaigns during the project period.
DANTES aimed to contribute to
sustainable development, where environmental as well as economic and social aspects are included.
The project was started in September 2002 and ended in September 2005. The
DANTES website is now maintained and updated by a project
that is run within the Swedish competence centre
and managed by Akzo Nobel.
