Abstract : This research focuses on evaluation of various tools that assist in the selection of hazardous material substitutes. Substitute material consideration is a function of the Hazardous Material Pharmacy (HMP) when a hazardous material is requested for purchase and use in a current base operation. The substitute material decision is complex, involving identification of potential substitutes and then comparison of factors, such as cost, performance, and environmental effects, between the potential substitute and the material being requested. Various tools such as life cycle cost models, databases, and other information services can provide assistance to HMPs making substitution decisions.
