TURI Guides to Safer Chemicals The the guides in this series are intended to help companies identify safer chemicals for their particular applications.
Research Reports and Articles TURI’s Research Reports describe industry and university led efforts to advance TUR for specific industry applications, processes, progress or results for toxics use reduction research or the state of a toxics use reduction problem.
Policy Reports and Articles Policy Reports provide information on methodologies and policy approaches for toxics use reduction. These include TURA Policy Analyses developed as background for state-level decision-making about individual chemicals, chemical classes, and industry sectors; TURA program evaluations; analyses of the TURA data; chemical alternatives assessments; decision-making guidance; and studies of the public health implications of toxics use reduction.
Case Studies Toxics Use Reduction requires a systems approach. A case study can be a helpful tool for understanding all of the variables that interact for a successful TUR solution - safer alternatives assessments and testing, work flow and process, as well as financial variables. These case studies from both the Office of Technical Assistance and Technology (OTA) and TURI cover a diverse group of industries and sizes of businesses.
Fact Sheets TURI Chemical Fact Sheets describe the hazards, exposure routes, uses and alternatives, and regulatory context for selected chemicals, including those on the Toxics Use Reduction Science Advisory Board's list of More Hazardous Chemicals. TURI also publishes fact sheets on safer alternatives to specific toxic chemicals.  TURI fact sheets on Disease Prevention and Toxics Use Reduction examine the data on chemicals associated with a specific disease endpoint, such as cancer or asthma.
