'03 TUR Planner Conference

Organization(s) Toxics Use Reduction Institute
Project Description The TUR Planner Continuing Education Conference was held on November 18, 2003, in Marlborough. Planners and others interested in reducing toxics were offered four very different topics. At the first of two morning sessions, participants learned about the effect of international materials restrictions on the electronics and electrical equipment industry and how this $181 billion industry sector is responding. Concurrently, three panelists discussed how to achieve effective, value-added implementation of an EMS to create monetary and stakeholder value. In the afternoon, Dr. Robert E. Burr, distinguished physician and toxicologist, discussed how the so-called "high priority substances" affect the body. Meanwhile, the other afternoon session covered non-production TUR, illustrating how innovative toxics use reduction strategies have been developed for practicing TUR in municipal buildings (e.g. schools), small businesses, and homes.
