Dear Arndt,

We may have a use for the vessels if they fit our old CEM unit. We would be happy to pay for the cost of shipping them to the UK.

Subject: What to to with PFA vessels out of use

Dear colleagues,
we have some old sets of PFA microwave digestion vessels in our storage room, resulting from scrapped CEM units. There is no more need for them.
Does anybody know something about PFA recycling? Is there any value of the material in any reuse or recycling path, or is it normal laboratory waste?
Thank you.
