Título Management of hazardous materials at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals
Información bibliográfica July 1988, Vol.19, No.1, p.69-77. Illus. 15 ref.
Resumen Information is gathered on the quantity and the nature of hazardous chemical waste materials generated by the King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (Saudi Arabia) in order to prepare a temporary plan for their disposal. Since the amount of hazardous waste materials generated is small, land disposal is found to be the most economically feasible disposal method until a regional treatment facility becomes available. Guidelines for chemical storage are prepared, stressing the importance of keeping the quantity of chemicals stored to a minimum. A management plan for collection, transportation, and ultimate disposal of hazardous waste materials is outlined. A manual on safe chemical disposal practices in the laboratory is prepared and distributed to concerned departments of the University.
