GLRPPR Sector Resource: Pollution Prevention (P2) Spotlight: Reducing Dichloromethane Waste

Title:
Pollution Prevention (P2) Spotlight: Reducing Dichloromethane Waste

Abstract:
This publications looks at the use of Dichloromethane (DCM), a toxic solvent with many industrial uses, and considered by EPA to be a probable human carcinogen. Total industrial releases of DCM reported to the TRI Program have decreased by 58% from 2003 to 2013. Learn how source reduction and other environmentally-friendly practices contributed to this trend, and read about how the Roberts Automatic Products facility in Chanhassen, Minnesota, has significantly reduced its use of DCM.
