Safer Alternatives for Toxic Solvents – Auto Repair Facilities
April 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
A series of four (4) trainings will be given by Katy Wolf, Ph.D. and hosted by greenUP!
This session will target the mineral spirits used in parts cleaners and the halogenated and nonhalogenated solvents used in auto aerosol cleaners today. Many of these formulations have high VOC content and many pose toxicity problems. It will focus on the water-based cleaning formulation alternatives for parts cleaning, water-based brake cleaning formulations and equipment and safer formulations for other aerosol cleaners that were formulated and tested by IRTA in California auto repair facilities. The costs of the alternatives will be presented and discussed.
