Subject: Inactivation of Hygromycin B
I have waste at a facility that is plant material with hygromycin B, which is quite toxic for humans.  We normally devitalize our plant material by autoclaving, but this doesn't seem like a good idea with the hygromycin B.  Does anyone know how one would go about inactivating the hygromycin and then still be able to subsequently devitalize the plant material (most likely by thermal means)?
