Re: Minimizing Lab Waste



Keith -

If you are doing any outreach to schools that teach auto refinishing,
the Design for the Environment (DfE) Program has links to its Best
Practices Outreach Kit and the virtual autobody shop.  The DfE website
is <http://www.epa.gov/dfe/pubs/projects/auto>.

 As you are probably aware, automotive paints contain a lot of hazardous
chemicals.   The National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation
(NATEF), which provides accreditations for secondary and post-secondary
automotive programs, recommends that all collision repair/refinish
programs follow the DfE publications on best health and environmental
practices <http://www.natef.org/program_standards/collision.cfm>.

We are going to be doing some outreach to teachers this summer.  Is the
Battelle 1996 guide for teachers on minimizing lab
waste the most current resource of its type?
www.seattle.battelle.org/Services/ES/p2labman/index.htm

Any input would be appreciated.
