Description: Slop oil emulsion solids (K049) are generated in the first vessel where the emulsion stratifies. Oil reclaimed in slop oil/oil recovery systems is not a hazardous waste (SEE ALSO: 261.4(a)(12)). Emulsion breaking in surface impoundments/earthen devices is considered storage. Non-reclaimed emulsion is a hazardous waste even if it is reclaimable. Storage not directly related to the reclamation process needs a permit.
