Contains all known procedures for the safe destruction of a wide variety of hazardous chemicals, including antineoplastic drugs, and also tells how to deal with spills. Each procedure is presented in great detail, obviating the need for other references. Most of the procedures have been extensively validated, some by international collaborative studies, and many have been tested to see if the final reaction mixtures are mutagenic.
