GLRPPR Sector Resource: The Right Tools for the Job: Evaluating Frameworks for Chemical Alternatives Assessment

Title:
The Right Tools for the Job: Evaluating Frameworks for Chemical Alternatives Assessment

Abstract:
With the rise in green chemistry and growing concern over worker and consumer protection, businesses and regulatory agencies are increasingly looking to identify alternative chemicals for use in products and manufacturing processes. Alternatives assessment involves comparing the advantages and disadvantages of potential substitutes for toxic chemicals, and numerous agencies, nonprofits, and businesses have developed frameworks to help them conduct these analyses. In this issue of EHP, investigators review nearly two dozen of alternatives assessment frameworks to identify what's working and what needs improvement in this rapidly advancing field.
