Workshop Auto Minimizes Use of Hazardous Chemicals

Workshop Auto, located in Lowell, provides auto repair and engine machining services, specializing in foreign cars. The shop had been using over 1,200 14-ounce aerosol cans of engine degreaser on average each year. The aerosol cleaner contained toxic chemicals that were being sprayed in poorly ventilated spaces, negatively impacting the air quality in the shop. Workshop Auto replaced their aerosol degreaser with an aqueous engine washing machine using a TURI small business grant. The new machine uses a less hazardous cleaner in an enclosed piece of equipment that further minimizes worker exposure.
