Case stories include a description of hazards of the substance, its regulatory status, a description of the substitution process, including information on identification of alternatives, selected alternative and justification, implementation plan, costs and savings, and evaluation. We also collected unsuccessful cases of substitution which show the importance of evaluation of alternatives.
