The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has launched a Green Chemical Alternatives Purchasing Wizard. The Wizard is a tool to reduce the generation of hazardous wastes and potential workplace exposures in research and academic laboratories. The Wizard 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.
