Source Reduction Assistance - Safer Alternatives for Cleaning Applications
This agreement provides full EPA funding in the amount of $34,200 for the recipient to evaluate alternatives to the solvent tert-butyl acetate (TBAC), which is projected to have significant uses in CA in adhesives and aerosol products. The project will research the uses and applications for TBAC, evaluate the toxicity of TBAC versus other, less toxic, solvents, and demonstrate the alternatives in real-world settings. It will analyze the cost, toxicity, and cross-media effects of using TBAC versus the alternatives. The recipient will publish a guidance document on choosing safer alternatives that will be distributed to regulatory agencies, industry and worker associations.
