Title: Encouraging Toxic Use Reduction in Academic Laboratories

Can research labs use less toxic chemicals?

P3 researchers are developing a management model for research labs that allows them to select less toxic and less polluting green chemical alternatives using the purchasing process. The system will inventory types and volumes of chemicals used by labs and link to alternative green chemical databases. The system will also promote strategies for use, identify barriers to adopting these alternatives, and will be used in MIT's student training modules.
