Pilot Project: Chemical Waste Minimization in the Educational Laboratory: Final Report

Illinois Sustainable Technology Center

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingTechnical report

Abstract

During Calendar Year 1999, the Illinois Waste Management and Research Center (WMRC), a state agency, and Argonne National Laboratory-East (Argonne), a federal research facility, jointly conducted a pilot project entitled "Chemical Waste Minimization in the Educational Laboratory." Four Chicago area secondary schools voluntarily participated in this Pilot Project. The purpose of the Pilot Project was to promote the integration of waste minimization and 'pollution prevention (WM&P2) strategies within secondary schools by presenting microscale chemistry lectures and demonstrations to high school chemistry teachers and by performing chemical vulnerability assessments within high school chemistry laboratories.
