What is the European REACH Grease Thickeners Consortium (ERGTC)?

The European REACH Grease Thickeners Consortium (ERGTC) was established in 2008 to bring together several organisations with an interest in a variety of substances, all used as thickeners in the grease manufacturing industry. The ERGTC has a large portfolio of substances, with wide-ranging chemistry, which have been spilt into Task Forces, based on areas of common chemistry. A number of substances were registered in 2013 with the remaining substances to be registered by 2018.
