P2 Accomplishments: Reducing Trichloroethylene Waste in the Fabricated Metals Sector

To spur discussion of the ways in which TRI facilities have reduced their releases, EPA is developing a new Web series on chemicals and sectors for which significant pollution prevention (P2) progress has been made. This bulletin describes the fabricated metal industry’s reductions of trichloroethylene releases (and overall waste) and examines the reported P2 practices that have contributed.

Once you've looked at the bulletin, please tell us what you think about it in the TRI discussion forum.
