What is Toxics Use Reduction?

Toxics Use Reduction (TUR) is about preventing pollution at the source rather than controlling it once generated. Examples of TUR include replacing a toxic chemical with a safer substance or changing the manufacturing process so that the toxic substance is no longer necessary.

Therefore, these grant funds can NOT be used for ventilation, exposure controls and recycling.
