Title:OSWER FEEDBACK ON THE PBT BRIEFING MATERIALS
RCRA Online Number:14624
Date:09/23/2002
To:Johnson
From:Horinko
Organization of Recipient:OPPTS
Description: EPA's Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) announced the Resource Conservation Challenge that includes the National Waste Minimization Partnership Program, which strives to reduce the 1991 generation rates of 30 priority chemicals (many of which are considered persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) chemicals) by 50 percent by 2005 through voluntary partnerships. OSWER is working on other PBT projects, such as mercury-bearing hazardous waste studies, florescent lamp recycling programs, and studies on gasification technologies. EPA does not currently plan to add other PBTs to the original list of 12, but encourages voluntary actions to reduce the manufacture and use of PBT-like substances.
