Dry Cleaning

Organization(s) New York Empire State Development
Project Description The Empire State Development Small Business Environmental Ombudsman (ESD SBEO) is continuing its work with dry cleaners, who are using non-PERC- based cleaning technologies. Under a grant from the EPA the ESD SBEO has partnered with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, the Environmental Business Association of NYS, Inc., and other associations to conduct outreach and provide funding to help dry cleaners transition to non-PERC Dry cleaning. ESD will be awarding grants to individual dry cleaners who have committed to adopting a PERC alternative. The businesses that receive these grants will be studied for a year after the grants are awarded to evaluate the alternatives from both the environmental and textile perspectives.
