Northwest Green Chemistry is pleased to announce the public release of the Washington State Antifouling Boat Paint Alternatives Assessment. We would like to thank all of those who provided feedback and participated in the alternatives assessment process.
This report was based on the Washington State Alternatives Assessment Guide for Small and Medium Businesses, a subset of the Interstate Chemicals Clearinghouse Alternatives Assessment Guide.
This Alternatives Assessment considers hazard, comparative exposure, cost and availability, and performance.
We recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for managing fouling that works for all situations. The Selection Guide should assist boaters and other interested parties in selecting the solution that fits their needs. The Selection Guide also contains additional supplemental information about hazard and performance.
The 5 Takeaways highlights our primary conclusions from this Alternatives Assessment. These high-level conclusions are supported by the detailed and in-depth data in the full report.
