Tons of waste reagents stored at science labs in Gwangju Jeonnam School


Tons of waste reagents were found at school science labs in Gwangju and Jeollanamdo.


Hazardous reagents and substances such as mercury, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrochloric acid and lead nitrate are stocked in large amount at school science labs, causing concern.


Although most of the substances are no longer used as class materials through the changes in education system, no disposal orders have been given, so they are still being stored at the schools.


The amount of formalin found at schools in Gwangju and Jeonnam areas are in total of 26,051kg; 4,437kg and 21,614kg in each area respectively. The formalin solution is a hazardous substance used at schools for storing dissections of frogs or snakes which can cause  blindness and dyspnea through exposure.


The total amount of waste reagents stored is 24,196kg in Gwangju and Jeonnam areas, of which 7,382kg are in Gwangju and 16,814kg are in Jeonnam elementary, middle and high schools.
