New TURA Data Online Tool
Massachusetts Companies Reduce Toxics
TURI recently released the newly-designed Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) Data online tool. Simply click on a chemical, company or town to view charts that make it easy to understand toxic chemical use in Massachusetts.
The TURA Data online tool pulls data reported to MassDEP by more than 400 Massachusetts companies that otherwise use more than 10,000 lbs., or manufacturer or process over 25,000 lbs., of a listed chemical, and use over 1,000 lbs. of a higher hazard substance per year.
Whether you are a manager, worker, community organizer or legislator, you will find the data useful. This "right to know" information provides insights into comparable usage amounts and trends in companies and communities.
