Sustainability has become a necessity for industries and corporate entities in Canada. This means that many businesses are focusing on efficiency through sustainability and alternative solutions that lead to less waste. For laboratories and clean rooms, this means a safe working environment and an increase in employee morale.
However, managing hazardous material and other contaminants is not easy. Things like protective gloves and safety garments are used in high volumes and thrown into the garbage after use. If this is the route taken, they will end up in a landfill.
Throwing these items away is the cheapest method of disposal but they are hazardous and the chemicals may seep into groundwater. Also, the synthetic polymers in the protective gear do not degrade once they are dumped in a landfill. Others will consider incineration, but this will also lead to the emission of greenhouse gases and pollutants.
