Specific Compounds

Information about waste is needed to evaluate the health effects, determine the best method of handling, and evaluate methods of storage, treatment or disposal. Items of interest include:

• Physical properties such as density or viscosity

• Toxicity in water

• Permissible exposure limits (PELs) in the air

• Health hazards

• Precautions

• Emergency and first aid procedures

• Disposal methods

There are a number of references that define the properties of specific compounds (Sax 1984, Sittig 1985, Weiss 1986), however, no current source defines the impact of hazardous mixtures.
