GLRPPR Sector Resource: Five Chemicals Alternatives Assessment Study

Title:
Five Chemicals Alternatives Assessment Study

Abstract:
In July of 2005, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts requested that the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) conduct a scientific study to assess safer alternatives for the following five toxic or hazardous chemicals: lead, formaldehyde, perchloroethylene (PCE), hexavalent chromium, and di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP). TURI developed an "alternatives assessment" methodology that was used to evaluate the technical, economic, and environmental, health and safety feasibility of alternatives to the five chemicals for selected uses. The full report (executive summary, report and appendices) is available for download in Adobe PDF Format at this web address.
