Title Problems of waste chemical handling at a large biomedical research facility.
Bibliographic information Sep. 1980, Vol.4, No.2, p.191-205, Illus. 6 ref.
Abstract Handling and disposal methods for the chemical wastes arising at the National Institutes of Health (U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare), a large biomedical laboratory complex, are described with emphasis on the operational and management problems posed. A study of incinerators which may be suitable for dealing with a large proportion of the wastes is described, which has led to a more detailed investigation of one of the most promising units.
