GLRPPR Sector Resource: Pollution Prevention Products for Illinois Dry Cleaners: Testing and Recommendations of Chemicals for Wetcleaning

Title:
Pollution Prevention Products for Illinois Dry Cleaners: Testing and Recommendations of Chemicals for Wetcleaning

Abstract:
This research report was written by Anthony Star and William Eyring of the Center for Neighborhood Technology, Chicago, IL with funding from the Illinois Waste Management and Research Center (WMRC). This report examines the wastewater from nine different products typically used in the wetcleaning process. While several previous studies have indicated few or no problems with the wastewater associated with the wetcleaning process, those studies have all examined single types of wetcleaning setups (e.g. machines, detergents). This study analyses the wastewater from nine of the most commonly used wetcleaning products to provide a broader overview of the characteristics of the effluent. (PDF Format; Length: 22 pages)
