ABSTRACT
The article discusses efforts to mitigate styrene issue in the U.S. One effort refers to the move of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that added styrene to the Report on Carcinogens identifying chemicals that potentially put people at risk for cancer. It mentions the stand of National Association of Sewer Service Cos. (NASSCO) which supports the efforts of Styrene Information and Research Center (SIRC) which filed a case challenging the designation of styrene as a carcinogen.
