Understanding Hazardous Waste Delisting Requirements – An Opportunity for Cost Savings

Thursday, March 15, 2018 - 1:30 P.M. EDT

About this webinar:

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, which guides USEPA’s hazardous waste management programs, provides for a process to remove, or “delist”, a waste generated at a facility from the list of hazardous wastes. This delisting process is initiated by the generator, who prepares a petition for delisting the waste. The petition provides information about the waste, including its chemical composition, to demonstrate the rationale for delisting the waste. The petition is reviewed by the appropriate regulatory agency to determine whether the waste should continue to be listed as hazardous.

During an EPA review period of the delisting program, delistings were granted to a total of 136 separate waste streams, generated at 115 separate facilities. By far the most common waste codes for which delistings were granted were F006, an electroplating waste, and F019 the wastewater treatment sludges from the chemical conversion coating of aluminum.

A critical component of a delisting program is the analytical program which is defined in the Sampling & Analysis Plan (SAP) which is documented for a specific plant location.  The SAP will define the chemicals of concern which can reasonably be expected to be in the waste material utilizing   EPA SW-846 Methods.  This can include the total constituent analysis as defined in 40 CFR Part 261, Appendix VIII or Appendix IX to Part 264. In some cases, wastes may require special analysis associated with a specific operation or process.  The laboratory needs to follow all the requirements defined the SAP & be proficient in analyzing complex chemicals in complex matrices.

Topics Presented:

  • General overview of the delisting process 
  • Analytical support required for delisting efforts
  • Summary of the advantages of pursuing a delisting effort

Who Should Attend?

  • Industry Representatives
  • Regulatory Officials

A question and answer session will immediately follow the presentation. At the conclusion of each webinar, you will be asked for your feedback and opinions for future webinar topics to be developed by TestAmerica.
