JARDIM, Wilson de Figueiredo. Waste management program for chemical residues in both teaching and research laboratories. Quím. Nova [online]. 1998, vol.21, n.5, pp.671-673. ISSN 0100-4042. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40421998000500024.
The generation of chemical residues in both teaching and research laboratories is a serious problem in Brazil. In this article, a Chemical Residues Management Program is presented and discussed. The Program is centered in different hierarchic positions, but driven by minimization. A common ground for discussion and distribution of related information is also proposed as a mean to spread the program throughout Brazilian Universities.
