GLRPPR Sector Resource: Introduction to Toxics Use Reduction Workshop - Webinar

Title:
Introduction to Toxics Use Reduction Workshop - Webinar

Abstract:
This approximately 5 and a half hour workshop was presented by TURI for staff of the Michigan DEQ. The workshop focuses on ways to assist companies to reduce their use of toxic chemicals using the six TUR techniques: input substitution, product reformulation, production unit redesign or modification, production unit modernization, improved operation and maintenance, and integral recycling.

The workshop covers the process characterization procedure at a facility, including materials accounting. It moves on to the identification of toxics use reduction opportunities, and the evaluation of these options from a variety of perspectives, including economic, technical, and safety. The use of pilot testing for preferred options is discussed as well. Training slides available at http://www.michigan.gov/documents/deq/Toxic_Use_Reduction_Training_Slides_540407_7.pdf.
