Perc got a reprieve in New Jersey

Perchloroethylene in drycleaning might get a temporary break as two senators from New Jersey proposed a bill that will continue its use through 2011 while the Department of Environmental Protection conducts a study on alternative drycleaning solvents.

According to the Halogenated Solvents Industry Alliance, the bill responds to concerns raised by the drycleaning industry about the DEP’s proposal to phase out perc use in the state.
