The wizard tool was developed by MIT as a way to reduce the hazardous waste profile in research labs. It enables the choice of alternative methods:
- By the chemical you wish to replace
- By the process you wish to replace or modify
- By an alternative chemical you may have heard or read about
- By an alternative process you may have heard or read about
