P2OASys Tool to Compare Materials

TURI developed the Pollution Prevention Options Analysis System (P2OASys) tool to help companies and others organize information to compare the environmental, health and safety (EHS) attributes of chemicals, formulated products and production process changes. 

P2OASys is for screening purposes and should be considered as one resource in your decision-making process. It is used to:

  • Organize chemical hazard information obtained from various sources
  • Organize manufacturing process information that can affect occupational health and safety, such as heat and noise
  • Compare the EHS attributes of formulated products (using both SDS and chemical ingredient information)
  • Help clarify environmental, occupational or public health hazards prior to adopting alternative chemicals, products or processes
