Dear Leslie (and FYI other DCHAS Listserv members):
You may want to look at the "Environmental and Safety Concerns" links in NLM's "Enviro-Health Links - Nanotechnology" Web page:

Further, the "Nanomaterials in the Laboratory" and "Laboratory Waste Management" links in NLM's "Enviro-Health Links - Laboratory Safety" Web page might be useful:

Subject: [DCHAS-L] nano-treated plant material

We have recently started a greenhouse specifically for treating plants with nano materials, and the question has arisen as to how to dispose of the plants, soil, etc. after the experiments are complete. Does anyone have any experience with this?
