Title:APPLICABILITY OF PART 279 TO WASTE GREASE
RCRA Online Number:14597
Date:12/01/1993
To:Loomis
From:Anderson
Organization of Recipient:Wyoming Mining Association
Description: A material fits within the definition of used oil (UO) if it is used for the same purpose as used oil, mixed and managed in the same manner as used oil after use, and presents the same level of hazard as used oil (SEE ALSO: 57 FR 41574; 9/10/92). Used grease may be considered used oil, provided it is recycled and meets the 1000 ppm total halogen criteria. Used grease containing 10% or more of an F-listed solvent will typically not meet an F-listing, unless the F-listed ingredient is used for its solvent properties. Persons can rebut the presumption that the grease was mixed with a listed waste by documenting the use of F-listed solvents for other than their solvent properties. A facility burning used oil in an incinerator for disposal may be subject to maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standards.
