Title:REGULATORY STATUS OF A WATER-SOLVENT CLEANING SOLUTION
RCRA Online Number:14834
Date:11/20/2012
To:Jones
From:Devlin
Organization of Recipient:Printing Industries of America
Description: In a situation where a waste phase separates (biphasic solution), the generator must make the hazardous waste determination not only at the point of generation, but also after the waste separates into phases. A generator may use either knowledge or testing to determine if a waste exhibits a characteristic. The COLIWASA sampling protocol can be used to sample each phase in a multi-phasic solution. Separating or physically removing the water phase from the ignitable solvent phase is considered treatment. Generators may treat their hazardous waste without a permit or interim status in accumulation tanks and containers that are managed in compliance with the generator accumulation provisions of 40 CFR 262.34.
