Participate in the Halogenated Solvents Alternatives Assessment

Many halogenated solvents are Higher Hazard Substances under the TURA Program and are commonly used across Massachusetts manufacturing. TURI is launching a comprehensive investigation into these substances to try to identify safer substitutes. The completed alternatives assessment will include evaluation of technical performance, economic feasibility, and EHS endpoints. TURI invites TUR Planners to collaborate.
