Join us for a tour of UMass Lowell’s Toxics Use Reduction Laboratory to see the selection of safer industrial cleaning substances in action. You’ll meet UMass Lowell students who help companies select safer cleaning alternatives. Demonstrations will use actual soils and common substrates to reveal the identifying and selection process that results in the elimination of toxic substances like TCE, nPB, Toluene, Acetone. Demonstrations include how the safer alternatives are identified and how performance is tested using the lab’s state of the art equipment and modular facility. Understand how the lab tests using both safer solvents and different cleaning techniques.
