California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) recently announced it received a $105,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to help develop “guidance that could be a model for other states and businesses seeking to expand their green chemistry programs.”
The grant funds will be used along with $125,000 of DTSC’s own funds over a three-year period to “boost the development of tools and training to help businesses with their ‘alternative analysis’ efforts,” DTSC said. “The goal is to help businesses reduce toxic chemicals in consumer products.”
The Consumer Specialty Products Association has participated with allied trade associations to provide technical expertise and continues to offer resources to DTSC on the development of the guidance.
