PACHECO, Elen V.; HEMAIS, Carlos A.; FONTOURA, Geraldo A. T.  and  RODRIGUES, Fernando A.. A treatment of residue from polymer laboratories: a successful case of university and private company partnership. Polímeros [online]. 2003, vol.13, n.1, pp.14-21. ISSN 0104-1428.

This paper reports on a successful experience of interaction between a research institution, IMA, and a private company, Bayer. The aim of this interaction was to give a final solution to the problem of discarding hazardous residues from polymer research laboratories. After almost eight years of activity, the program of segregation and incineration of chlorinated and non-chlorinated residues is a real success.

Keywords : University-firm partnership; laboratory residue collection; environment.
