Title:APPLICABILITY OF THE F006 CLASSIFICATION TO WASTES FROM THE CHEMICAL ETCHING OF MAGNESIUM
RCRA Online Number:14691
Date:02/12/2004
To:Zick
From:Dellinger
Organization of Recipient:CTI & Associates, Inc.
Description: The applicability of hazardous waste listings is determined by the straight reading of regulatory language when specific processes are not mentioned. The F006 listing covers wastewater treatment sludges from certain electroplating operations. The listing applies to chemical etching, among other activities, and only excludes chemical etching of aluminum. Magnesium etching is not excluded, and wastewater treatment sludges generated from the chemical etching of magnesium are subject to the F006 listing. EPA's interpretation that the F006 listing applies to "common and precious metals" only applies in certain instances, but it did not affect anodizing, chemical etching and milling, or cleaning and stripping processes (SEE ALSO: 51 FR 43351; December 2, 1986). If a wastewater treatment sludge does not contain any constituents of concern for the F006 listing, the waste may be eligible for delisting.
