Abstract
The report presents results to evaluate the possibility of dramatic reductions in toxic chemical releases by focusing on safe substitutes for products that contain or use toxic chemicals in their manufacturing process. The report illustrates that the generation of hazardous waste and toxic pollutants is the choice made in the design of products and by the manufacturing processes in their production. It evaluates the potential for safe substitutes for priority uses of toxic chemicals by identifying and evaluating priority products that contain or use certain priority chemicals in their production; by identifying the existing substitutes for these priority products; and determining the technical impediments to the use of safe substitutes for priority products. Future research needs are also identified and a method is presented for identifying priority chemicals for substitute evaluation.
