How to deal with waste chemical reagent bottles
Chemical reagent is a relative standard substance for chemical research and is an important condition for scientific and technological progress. With the development of scientific undertakings, a large number of waste reagent bottles are generated due to the needs of various experiments. How to deal with these bottles?
Chemical reagent bottles are mainly used to store various chemical reagents. These reagents are of various types and have different properties. Some are flammable and explosive, some are easy to oxidize, and some are highly toxic. Reagent bottles will have residues of some chemical reagents, such as methanol, ethanol, acetone, etc. These bottles are inconvenient to recycle, and will cause great pollution to the environment if they are discarded at will. Disposing of these bottles can be done by:
1. Set up a special place for the storage of waste and waste liquid in the laboratory. Wastes with conflicting properties shall not be mixed, and the containers shall not leak. After filling, the waste generating unit or individual is responsible for harmless disposal.
2. For a small number of waste liquids and wastes that cannot be stored in large categories as required, label each bottle and obtain the consent of the Assets and Laboratory Management Office before accepting treatment. Chemicals and flammable chemicals that are prone to chemical reactions, unstable in nature, and easy to decompose and deteriorate in contact with moisture and water should be registered in advance and dealt with in a centralized manner.
Chemical reagents are widely used in industry, agriculture, medical and health, life science, inspection and quarantine, environmental protection, energy development, national defense and military industries, etc. Doing a good job in the treatment of waste reagent bottles can not only reduce environmental pollution, but also To a certain extent, it can also promote the standardized management of laboratories.
