RE: P2 for laboratories



Helen,
EPA has a website called Labs21 http://www.epa.gov/labs21century/ that may
have some useful information.

Also, check out University of Illinois Urbana-Champain website
http://www.ehs.uiuc.edu/~chem/fact_sheets/fact_sheets.html it has tons of
information on labs.

Generic P2 ideas in labs include
-Non-mercury thermometers
-Vacuum breakers on lab sinks (prevents cross contamination of potable water
system)
-Microscale techniques
-chemical exchange and chemical inventory control
-efficient hoods (they have a major impact on heating/cooling costs)

Hope this helps, George

I am assisting a facility that has a good size laboratory.  I am interested
in P2 documents or web sites that the faciltiy might find helpful.  I am
aware that US EPA has a document "Environmental Management Guide for Small
Laboratories."  I would appreciate any leads on web sites or other
references.  Thanks
