This webinar will focus on alternatives to perchloroethylene (PERC) in dry cleaning.  PERC is a carcinogen and PERC dry cleaning is scheduled to be phased out over the next several years in dry cleaning in California.  Other states are also considering similar regulations.  There are a variety of alternatives that are replacing PERC including hydrocarbon, Green Earth, glycol ether cleaning, water-based cleaning using various processes, and carbon dioxide cleaning.  Characteristics of these cleaning processes will be discussed.  The webinar will also focus on safer alternatives to PERC and trichloroethylene (TCE) used extensively in the textile cleaning industry for spotting.  TCE, like PERC, is a carcinogen.  Alternatives that can be used for spotting garments include water-based and soy based cleaners.
