Purpose:  The US Department of Transportation (DOT) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) require all personnel offering dangerous goods, hazardous materials, biological agents, dry ice, hazardous waste, medical waste or other regulated materials for shipment to complete certified training.  Biotech companies routinely ship and receive regulated materials or waste as part of their everyday operations.  Often these companies are not aware of the specific training requirements imposed by various regulating authorities and the associated fines issued when employee training records cannot be produce under inspection.

Ingenium - a full service environmental company focusing on hazardous waste.  In recent years, Ingenium has shifted its focus from traditional treatment technologies such as landfill and incineration to more sustainable solutions which include repurposing chemicals and/or recycling first.  One of Ingenium’s big claims to fame is the “Orphan Chemical Program.”  This program was specifically designed to put laboratory chemicals that would otherwise be sent as lab pack waste for disposal into other labs for continued use.  As a result, Ingenium has saved the Life Sciences community thousands of dollars on disposal, reduced waste volumes by tons and helped the environment by keeping these chemicals out of landfills and incinerators.

Ingenium also has recycling technologies to handle materials that do not have any beneficial reuse and therefore must be treated as waste.  With locations in San Diego, Milpitas, and Seattle, Ingenium is able to service the entire West Coast.
