This book has been produced by the EU Leonardo Project called Polymer REACH. The overall objective of Polymer REACH was to develop an e-learning platform and training materials for the European polymer industry to learn and understand how to manage their obligations under the European legislation - Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). This book forms part of the training materials which will complement the industry specific e-learning platform to enable the polymer industry to learn how to manage their obligations under REACH. The overall impact will be an increase in the knowledge base of the polymer industry on REACH, which will in turn help to increase competitiveness and sustainability of the sector. This book will be useful to anyone who works with polymers or the chemicals that are used to make polymers, whether they are end-users or suppliers. REACH is affecting everyone concerned with the polymer industry and this book will help them to prepare for the impact and consequences of the REACH legislation.

Like its groundbreaking predecessor, this Second Edition of Destruction of Hazardous Chemicals offers a collection of detailed procedures that can be used to degrade and dispose of a wide variety of hazardous chemicals. The book has been expanded and updated to broaden the scope of chemicals treated and to include new and modified procedures and alternatives to the use of some highly toxic materials. Entirely new chapters have been added on the removal of metal ions and biological stains from solution and the degradation of mycotoxins, enzyme inhibitors, polycyclic heterocyclic hydrocarbons, and highly reactive reagents such as butyllithium, chlorosulfonic acid, peracids, and phosgene. Another new chapter covers the alternatives to complex metal hydrides in the preparation of super-dry solvents. A new appendix by Dr. Stephen W. Rhodes describes new technologies for the treatment of complex waste streams produced by biomedical research institutions. The procedures described are applicable to both laboratory and bulk quantities, and to solutions in various solvents. Methods for cleaning up spills and solvents for wipe tests to ensure complete surface decontamination are frequently indicated. For laboratory scientists and workers concerned with occupational and environmental safety, this book provides easy reference with a listing of hazardous compounds indexed by name, molecular formula, and CAS registry number. For laboratory administrators, it offers economical alternatives to long-term storage and costly shipping of hazardous chemicals to disposal facilities.

The aim of the project is to create knowledge on how plastics recycling can increase without increasing the risk of emitting hazardous substances to the environment.The first general conclusion is that to be able to increase recycling there are measures needed at different levels. The following areas are of interest: • Legislation: new legislation is not necessary, but harmonisation and clear guidance to the existing one is. • Market: to create a market safety on content is needed. • If substances added are less hazardous the recycled raw material would be “more safe” to use. • There should be higher attention put on the knowledge of the recyclers. • Traceability and content: Further work on labelling reaching the recycle part of the value chain needs to be developed. It is also needed to develop a systematic approach towards risk assessments linked to recycling.
