There are many reasons to avoid using TCE, and with recent headlines in Minnesota it is more important than ever! It is a known human carcinogen and can contaminate soil, air, and water. This project will focus on replacing TCE with safer, yet effective options.
TCE ALTERNATIVES PROJECT
Although Minnesota is a leader in air quality, air pollution is still a concern in our state. Reducing VOC emissions has positive health impacts for your employees, the general population, and potentially your bottom line.
Your company is still paying twice for water; once for the water provided to your facility and once for the amount of water you are discharging to the local wastewater treatment facility. Water conservation measures can reduce the amount of water you use as well as your water costs
Implementing energy efficient solutions can benefit your business by reducing costs, reducing the impact on the environment, and helping to ensure that a reliable and secure source of energy is maintained for the future.
