Managing Solvent Use in the Biotech Industry

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description On October 10, 2002, approximately 50 professionals attended a workshop entitled "Managing Solvent Use: Best Practices for the Biotech Industry," which was sponsored by OTA and the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council. Representatives from several biotech companies and consulting firms were among those who attended the event. The focus of the workshop was to identify opportunities to reduce solvent use and associated waste and emissions in both laboratory and manufacturing operations. Presenters from industry, government agencies, and trade groups provided attendees with a cross-section of approaches to solvent use and waste reduction, regulatory requirements for this sector, and green chemistry applications as an alternative to solvent use. The workshop was well received, and many participants felt that it will help them develop better strategies for managing solvent use at their facility.
