Has the institution implemented a campus-wide inventory system to facilitate the reuse of laboratory chemicals?:

A brief description of the program:

FGCU re-uses virtually (>90%) all waste laboratory solvents (xylene, ethanol, and formalin) by recycling them with a CBG solvent distillation device. Waste laboratory solvents are segregated by the generators. Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) collects these waste laboratory solvents for recycling, and then redistributes them to the generators for reuse. Surplus (unused or orphan) laboratory chemicals are also collected by EHS for redistribution to other users through this system.
