Hmmm. These people really sound useful in the art and theater shops where we find ancient MEK-P and related resin catalysts.  Where do we find these hig h hazard deactivation specialists?  Monona

We utilize a high hazard deactivation specialist to deactivate peroxide containing materials. The specialist utilizes a hydraulic remote opening de vice to open expired peroxide forming chemicals. Once the container is open the material is deactivated using ferrous salts, amines, aqueous sodium metabisulfite and stannous chloride, and sodium hydroxide. The deactivation material will depend on the type of peroxide former. Our hazardous waste ha uler accepts the material once it is deactivated.    < /span>
