Abstract: A poster presentation regarding the feasibility of solvent waste management. Introduction: In Malta, the incinerator was designed to mainly treat and incinerate wastes from abattoir and some clinical waste. There are no local facilities available for the recovery of solvent waste. Solvents are sent abroad where they are recycled or incinerated. Aims: To determine the local scenario with respect to pharmaceutical waste processes; To assess which options are available to dispose of or to recycle solvents; To check whether it is feasible to set up a solvent recovery plant locally.
