Pollution Prevention Grants - Environmental Garment Care
This agreement provides full EPA funding in the amount of $73,128 for the recipient to develop a demonstration project for professional wet cleaning and CO2 dry cleaning in San Francisco and San Diego. These technologies are alternatives to tradition dry cleaning which uses percholoroethylene (PERC). PERC is a source of toxic air emissions and releases to ground and water (estimates are the 75% of dry cleaining sites are contaminated). PERC is being inceasingly regulated and/or phased out. This project will help dry cleaners transition to less polluting technologies.
