The first truck with outdated chemicals removed from the laboratories of Moldovan gymnasiums, lyceums and colleges will head today to Germany, where the reactives are to be disposed of. The Environment Ministry today started to carry abroad and destroy the unused reactive chemicals collected from Moldovan pre-university institutions.

Environment Minister Gheorghe Salaru today told a news conference that the substances will be transported abroad and disposed of by a German company, selected through tender. As many as 50 tons and 600 kilograms of reactive chemicals have been removed from 668 school laboratories in Chisinau and Balti municipalities, as well from 23 districts throughout the country, Salaru said.

A project manager for Sustainable Management of Persistent Organic Pollutants in Moldova, Valentin Plesca, said that other 15-20 tons of outdated and unusable reactive from chemistry laboratories that are no longer functional, but which are further jeopardizing the pupils and the environment, are to be removed from Moldovan schools.

The project was launched in 2011 by the Environment Ministry and will be completed in September 2012.

The project is managed by the Sustainable Management Office POP, subordinated to the Environment Ministry. The expenses estimated at about 4 million lei are covered by the National Environmental Fund.
