Organization of Recipient:Packard Instrument Co.
Description: Unused solvent is only subject to regulation as a discarded material when abandoned (i.e., disposed or incinerated) or recycled by being burned for energy. A CCP that is abandoned is a solid waste, while a CCP being reclaimed is not a solid waste. The transportation and sale of unused solvent, Ultima-Gold, is not subject to Subtitle C because it is a product rather than a discarded material. The material safety data sheet for solvent product "Ultima-Gold" indicates potential to be corrosive (D002) and reactive (D003). The product "Ultima-Gold" does not exhibit ignitability (D001) or extraction procedure (EP) toxicity (SUPERSEDED: See 261.24). A product solvent only meets P-listing or U-listing if the chemical on the P-list or U-list serves as the product's sole active ingredient.
