Trichloroethylene (TCE) Reduction Resources

Massachusetts has strict new reporting thresholds for certain hazardous industrial chemicals, the first being trichloroethylene. The Lab can help companies find safer substances that work,. Sometimes a technology change may be necessary to use a safer product. TURI awards technology grants to companies as well as dry cleaning facilities.

Companies that use at least 1,000 pounds of these chemicals annually must now:

  • report their use to the Department of Environmental Protection
  • pay fees
  • prepare toxics use reduction plans

Our services are free to Massachusetts companies. Contact us today to request an on site visit.
