During the 1990's there was a boom in the manufacturing of silicon computer chips in our area. These chips were manufactured in clean rooms and one of the critical steps in that manufacturing process involved the use of glycol ethers. Workers were exposed to the fumes of the glycol ethers and suffered a wide range of injuries themselves as well as birth defects in their children.
