Title: Green Chemical Alternatives Purchasing Wizard

URL: http://web.mit.edu/environment/academic/purchasing.html

Abstract: As an extension of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's effort to reduce the generation of hazardous wastes and potential workplace exposures in their research and academic laboratories and to provide a pollution prevention tool for the broader research community, they have developed and are announcing the launch of the Green Chemical Alternatives Wizard, which is now available.

The Green Chemical Alternatives Purchasing Wizard is a web-based tool. The wizard is a guided process that allows the user to search from a select list of solvents commonly used in the laboratory, and the associated process. The Wizard identifies less hazardous and more environmentally benign chemicals or processes that may be substituted, and provides journal references as well as URLs to information that is available online. Users may print article information or have email sent with the URL for the article reference.
