TURI works with industry and university researchers to identify and promote innovations in toxics use reduction and pollution prevention.
TURI supports research in fields that relate closely to toxics use reduction. Specifically, alternatives assessments and green chemistry are growing approaches used both by industry, government and activists that promote substitution of toxic chemicals for more benign chemistries and processes.
Our research staff includes members of UMass Lowell's Center for Highrate Nanomanufacturing. TURI's support of this research is focused on identifying safer ways to use the benefits of nanotechnology while minimizing the potential for adverse human and environment health impacts.
The TURI Laboratory conducts research to identify safer cleaning and disinfection formulations for use in homes, institutions and businesses.
