IC2 Webinar: Evaluating Product Performance during Alternatives Assessment

Evaluating Product Performance during Alternatives Assessment
December 1, 2016

Evaluating the performance of potential alternatives, whether drop-in chemical substitutes or changes in product design, can present a significant challenge to alternatives assessors in terms of time, money, and resources. In this webinar, three experts—Alex Stone, Safer Chemical Alternatives Chemist at the Washington Department of Ecology's Hazardous Waste & Toxics Reduction program; Jason Marshall, Cleaning Lab Director at the Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI); and Gregory Morose, TURI's Research Manager and a Research Professor at the College of Health Sciences at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell—discussed this challenge and presented three possible approaches: literature review, laboratory testing, and industry collaboration.
