GLRPPR Sector Resource: Assessment of Alternatives to Percholoroethylene for the Dry Cleaning Industry

Title:
Assessment of Alternatives to Percholoroethylene for the Dry Cleaning Industry

Abstract:
TURI conducted an alternative assessment of seven common alternatives to perc to help dry cleaners find technically viable and environmentally preferred methods for cleaning clothes. The alternatives evaluated include: Professional Wet Cleaning, Liquid Carbon Dioxide, High Flash Hydrocarbons, Acetal, Propylene Glycol Ethers, Cyclic Volatile Methyl Siloxane, and N-Propyl Bromide (nPB). The results are compiled in detail in this 54-page methods and policy report. TURI also published a four-page fact sheet that summarizes the information.
