Abstract

MARINHO, Claudio Cardoso et al. Chemical waste management in a teaching and research laboratory: the experience of the Laboratory of Limnology of UFRJ. Eclet. Quím. [online]. 2011, vol.36, n.2, pp. 85-104. ISSN 0100-4670.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-46702011000200005.

This work describes the waste management system developed at the Laboratory of Limnology of Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. The initial challenge was to identify and treat a great variety of wastes generated in the analytical procedures performed in the laboratory. Since many of the students and researchers are not chemists, an intensive training was performed during the establishment of the management system. After three years, there was a deep change of attitude of the professionals involved. The present experience may be useful for other laboratories with a profile similar to the one under study.

Keywords : chemical wastes; waste management; laboratory wastes.
