Use of Non-EPA Regulated Scintillation Cocktails

As employees, researchers, and students, at the University of Maryland Baltimore (UM), we have a responsibility to minimize the amount of hazardous waste that we generate. One common waste stream generated at UM is liquid scintillation cocktails. These cocktails can be either EPA regulated hazardous waste or not regulated. In order to eliminate the use of EPA regulated scintillation cocktails, please use scintillation cocktails from the left side of the list titled NON-EPA Regulated Scintillation Cocktails.
