OP-T2-41: Chemical Reuse Inventory
University Sustainability Coordinator
Office of Sustainability
Has the institution implemented a campus-wide inventory system to facilitate the reuse of laboratory chemicals?:
A brief description of the program:
Currently all chemicals are inventoried annually by each department, and there is an MS access database of all chemicals that are submitted and update it every year or when a new departmental inventory is submitted. Chemistry also maintains a chemical database of their inventory on ChemSW. Chemicals can be reused, but it is suggested that they're not reused after 3-5 years of being in storage.
