The Management of Chemical Waste in a University Setting.
Coons, David Michael
This thesis describes a study of the management of chemical waste at the State University of New York at Binghamton. The study revealed that the majority of chemical waste at the university is in the form of hazardous waste. It was hypothesized that the volume, related costs, and potential long-term liability associated with the disposal of hazardous waste could be reduced by using segregation, bulking, and neutralizaton methods. A revised chemical waste management program was developed. One year after implementation the volume of hazardous waste was reduced by 67 percent. Over $11,400 in related costs was saved. The potential long-term liability, on a per-drum basis, was reduced by nearly 93 percent. (Author/TW)
