MilliporeSigma created a unique web-based greener alternative scoring matrix, also known as DOZN™—a quantitative green chemistry evaluator based on the 12 principles of green chemistry. The 12 principles of green chemistry provide a framework for learning about green chemistry and designing or improving materials, products, processes and systems. DOZN™ scores products based on metrics for each principle and aggregates the principle scores to derive a final aggregate score. The system calculates scores based on manufacturing inputs, Globally Harmonized System (GHS) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) information which provide a green score for each substance. DOZN™ is flexible enough to encompass the diverse portfolio of products ranging from chemistry to biology based products. The DOZN™ system has also been verified and validated by a third party to ensure best practices are applied. This new Greener Chemistry initiative offers customers an increased breadth of Greener Alternative products with confirmatory documentations to validate greener characteristics.
