objectives
Objectives

After this module, you will be able to…

  • Discuss the evolution and context for toxics use reduction (TUR)
  • Understand the central role of planning in achieving TUR
  • Differentiate between TUR and pollution control
  • List the six TUR techniques, and discuss examples of how they can be implemented
what is tur toxics use reduction
What is TUR Toxics Use Reduction?

Toxics Use Reduction Act Definition*:

In-plant changes in production processes or raw

materials that reduce, avoid, or eliminate the use of

toxic or hazardous substances or generation of

hazardous byproducts per unit of product, so as to

reduce risks to the health of workers, consumers,

or the environment, with out shifting risks between

workers, consumers, or the environment. TUR shall be achieved through any of the six defined techniques.

goals of tur
Goals of TUR
  • 50% reduction in the generation of toxic by-products by 1997 through TUR
  • Establish TUR as the preferred means of regulatory compliance
  • Sustain and promote the competitive position of Massachusetts industry
  • Promote reduction in the production of toxic and hazardous substances
  • Enhance and coordinate state agency enforcement of environmental laws
incentives for tur
Incentives for TUR
  • Identifies potential cost savings
  • Provides a systematic materials tracking program
  • TUR planning methods can provide a foundation for future EMS or ISO programs
  • Identifies process or chemical inefficiencies
the six tur techniques
The Six TUR Techniques
  • Input Substitution
  • Product Reformulation
  • Production Unit Redesign/Modification
  • Production Unit Modernization
  • Improved Operations and Maintenance
  • Recycling which is integral to the process
1 input substitution
1. Input Substitution
  • Replacing a toxic or hazardous substance or raw material used in a production unit with a non-toxic or less toxic substance.

Examples:

    • Substitute soy-based inks for petrochemical inks
    • Substitute vegetable-based fluids for oil-based cutting fluids
    • Substitute non-toxic pigments for toxic ones.
2 product reformulation
2. Product Reformulation
  • Reformulating or redesigning end products to be nontoxic or less toxic upon use, release or disposal

Examples:

    • Decrease the amount of solvent needed to manufacture paint by switching to a high-solids formulation
    • Introduce new product lines specifically designed to eliminate the use of toxic chemicals.
3 production unit redesign or modification
3. Production Unit Redesign or Modification
  • Developing and using production units of a different design than those currently used.

Examples:

    • Upgrade tool and equipment quality to reduce off-spec products
    • Install automatic thermostats or automatic flow controls
    • Install high-performance nozzles, brushes, and applicators to conserve coatings and reduce the number of reject products
4 production unit modernization
4. Production Unit Modernization
  • Upgrading or replacing existing production unit equipment and methods with equipment and methods of a more recent design.

Examples:

    • Install countercurrent rinsing systems to reclaim process chemicals
    • Use air knives to blow solutions back into baths
    • Replace solvent-based paint strippers with mechanical processes
5 improved operations and maintenance
5. Improved Operations and Maintenance
  • Improved housekeeping, system adjustments, product/process inspections, or production unit control equipment or methods

Examples:

    • Institute employee training programs
    • Install splash guards and drip boards
    • Implement inventory control program to prevent expiration of chemicals
6 recycling integral to the process
6. Recycling(Integral to the Process)
  • Recycling, reuse, or extended use of toxics by using equipment or methods which are integral to the production unit, including, but not limited to filtration and other closed loop methods.

Examples:

    • Capture and recycle cleaning solvents
    • Regeneration of acid instead of disposal of acid
    • Recycle and reuse spent rinse water
    • Distill and reuse solvent strippers
tur planning process
TUR Planning Process
  • TUR Planners must translate the process into a workable plan
  • Planning is cyclical

  • Planning viewed as a continual improvement cycle
