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.
If you have any questions, please contact Felice Kincannon at 978-934-3346.
