Impact on the iodine sector

Certain EU policy and regulatory developments stemming from the EU Green Deal such as the Regulation on batteries or the Farm to Fork Strategy will be beneficial to the iodine sector as they will provide an impetus for:

1) the use of iodine for the development of sustainable batteries;

2) promotion of healthy diets that will pave the way for iodine biofortification of crops.

Other EU policy and regulatory developments stemming from the EU Green Deal such as the rules on endocrine disruptors may adversely affect iodine.
