The Green Chemistry Initiative Science Advisory Panel has completed its report on advancing green chemistry in California to the Department of Toxic Substance Control Director Maureen Gorsen. The report describes the work of the Panel, especially its process in developing green chemistry options.  It also discusses 38 ideas for limiting use of toxic substances in manufacturing rather than managing toxic waste post-production.

It is important to note that, while there was substantial agreement on many of the options developed by the Panel and its subcommittees, they did not attempt to reach consensus on the options developed for presentation to Director Gorsen. Therefore, this report presents a range of options for the state to consider. Each option was developed by one or more individual member of the Panel and should not be regarded as representing the consensus.

This text-only version contains the final outcomes of the Panel's deliberations. It is posted here:
