Industry Grants

Organization(s) Toxics Use Reduction Institute
Project Description The Cleaner Technology Demonstration Sites and Matching Grants Program provides funding to companies to implement or demonstrate innovative toxics use reduction projects. Under the program, matching grants are awarded for feasibility studies of potential TUR options, pilot testing and validation, and systems and/or management projects. TURI is particularly interested in cleaner technologies in the following areas: plastics (e.g., non-heavy metal pigments or solvent substitutions); environmental managements systems development and implementation; innovative materials accounting and total cost assessment methods; and quality management systems and their effects on toxics use reduction. More than $470,000 has been awarded to 37 Massachusetts companies for innovative TUR projects between 1993 and 1999.

Additional project assistance is available to companies through the Institute's InTURn Program, which provides engineering, chemistry, and other students to work on TUR projects directly with companies. While these are generally summer positions, a limited number of longer-term positions were offered starting in 1999. All interns receive intensive TUR training at the Institute.
