The chemical compound trichoroethylene is a chlorinated hydrocarbon commonly used as an industrial solvent. It is informally referred to as TCE, and sold under a variety of trade names. TCE is a clear non-flammable liquid with a sweet smell.

In addition to its industrial uses, trichloroethylene was used from about 1930 as a volatile anesthetic and analgesic in millions of patients, before its toxic properties were realized. Our TCE Contamination and Cleanup Curriculum teaches critical awareness using an integrated approach for grades 9-12 in the areas of science, social studies, language arts, and government.TCE is of special concern in the Southside Tucson area.

Please read our introduction page before you proceed.
