For the past three years, the Minnesota Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) has been working to help Minnesota businesses replace trichloroethylene (TCE) with safer, yet effective alternatives through its TCE Alternatives Project. While there are a variety of alternatives available, replacement is not straightforward, and many of the potential options carry serious health or environmental concerns of their own.
With funding from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and US EPA, MnTAP partnered with the Toxic Use Reduction Institute (TURI) at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and chemical and equipment vendors to perform testing to help companies find and implement the best alternative to meet their needs.
Speaker: Jane Paulson, MnTAP
This webinar is presented as part of the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center's Sustainability Seminar Series.
