This report, prepared for the Centro Nacional de Produccion mas Limpia (CNP+L), examines the lack of disposal methods for dry cleaning solvents in Costa Rica. CNP+L is concerned with this problem because they focus on the promotion of cleaner production. Because of the harmful effects associated with these solvents, alternative disposal methods are crucial. We verified the need for alternative disposal methods through interviews with dry cleaners. With a matrix analysis, we determined that the best long-term solution is to make the GreenEarth Solution the primary cleaning solvent in Costa Rica. We also recommend that a chemical recycling plant be set up in a centralized location in Central America so that all Central American countries would benefit.
