Title:REGULATION OF NITROGLYCERINE UNDER REVISED MIXTURE AND DERIVED-FROM RULES
RCRA Online Number:14654
Date:03/18/2003
To:Smith
From:Dellinger
Organization of Recipient:Pharmecology Associates
Description: Under the revised mixture and derived-from rules, wastes listed solely for exhibiting the characteristic of ignitability, corrosivity, or reactivity are not hazardous wastes if they do not exhibit a characteristic. Medicinal nitroglycerine is not listed as P081 if it is not reactive because P081 is listed solely for reactivity. If a waste does not exhibit a characteristic at the point of generation, then land disposal restrictions (LDR) are not applicable (SEE ALSO: 66 FR 27286; 5/16/01). The revised mixture and derived-from rules are less stringent, so authorized states may choose not to adopt them. Nitroglycerine will remain regulated as P081 in states that do not adopt the new rules.
