Today’s laboratories frequently deal with equipment challenges and process issues, regulatory and safety concerns, space constraints and much more.
Given the number of challenges at hand, it makes sense that decisions are sometimes made based on perceived ease alone. Laboratory waste management, and more specifically the management of hazardous solvent waste, is often approached with simplicity in mind.
For example, a lab may consider how to properly dispose of chemical waste containing solvents without even considering onsite solvent recycling.
