Laboratory workers generate waste chemicals. The ideal solution to the problem of disposal of such wastes is to eliminate them at the source. Much progress has been made and continues to be made in this area. However, the disposal of relatively small quantities of a large variety of chemical wastes generated, for example, in school, college, and university laboratories, in hospital pharmacies and in research, analytical, and quality control laboratories can be difficult and expensive. This book provides the means for waste disposal under these conditions. Hazardous Laboratory Chemicals Disposal Guide, Second Edition is an excellent handbook filled with information on the disposal of more than 500 waste and surplus chemicals. Emphasis is placed on disposal methods that turn hazardous waste material into non-toxic products. These methods fall into several categories, including acid/base neutralization, oxidation or reduction, and precipitation of toxic ions as insoluble solids.Hazardous Laboratory Chemicals Disposal Guide, Second Edition also provides data on hazardous reactions of chemicals, assisting laboratory managers in developing a plan of action for emergencies such as the spill of any of the chemicals listed.
