Persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) chemicals under legislative review

Oregon Senate Bill 737 presents big challenges to municipalities and businesses on the “hot seat” to reduce persistent pollutants in water. EcoBiz, an ecological business certification program, is a voluntary multi-media approach that recognizes businesses who adopt a set of sustainable practices. This program is now being seen as a practical and adaptable “Plug & Play” template to foster wide-ranging business practice change, as well as a model for municipalities to meet the requirements imposed by regulatory drivers. Learn how Oregon is taking a proactive leadership position that will secure safe water for future generations. Aliphatic hydrocarbons, dioxins, pesticides, phenols, phthalates, PBBs, PBDE, PCBs, polychlorinated naphthalenes, PAHs, semi-volatile organic compounds are all evaluated for toxicity and adverse effects to drinking water supply.

Pollution Prevention Resource Center is an ‘essential’ resource to learn more about this important issue. Ecolink Inc. is doing their part to work with government, academic and industry in the design and development of next generation cleaning technology including: all purpose cleaner degreaser, citrus solvent degreaser, d limonene degreaser, heavy duty degreasers, metal degreaser, non flammable degreaser, solvent degreasers and parts degreasers as well as alternatives to ZEP® citrus degreaser, ZEP® cleaner degreaser, ZEP® degreaser and ZEP® orange degreaser.
