GLRPPR Sector Resource: Chemical Alternatives Analysis: Methods, Models, and Tools: Revised Final Report to the Department of Toxic Substances Control

Title:
Chemical Alternatives Analysis: Methods, Models, and Tools: Revised Final Report to the Department of Toxic Substances Control

Abstract:
This report was prepared with the objective of identifying and evaluating existing tools, standards, methods and models for assessing and comparing alternatives, focusing on chemicals of concern in consumer products. Chapter 1 introduces the main concepts surrounding the use of toxic chemicals in the industrial economy and gives an overview of the alternatives analysis process. Chapter 2 reviews significant regulatory frameworks that involve either the evaluation of alternatives or the management of toxic substances. Chapter 3 explores existing models and methodological frameworks for conducting alternatives assessment. Chapter 4 reports a variety of tools and data resources that are useful in evaluating the hazard traits and human and environmental impacts of individual chemical substances. Methods for modeling and documenting complex decisions are presented in Chapter 5. General considerations for performing CAA are discussed in Chapter 6, along with several case studies of published alternatives analyses of harmful chemicals.
