Title:APPLICABILITY OF HAZARDOUS WASTE CODES TO A CHEMICAL POLISHING SYSTEM
RCRA Online Number:11854
Date:07/15/1994
To:Tease
From:Brandes
Organization of Recipient:Hubbard-Hall, Inc.
Description: Discarded chemical polishing bath solution containing the oxidizer hydrogen peroxide may be ignitable (D001) because it is capable of severely exacerbating a fire by yielding oxygen to stimulate combustion. Acid baths may be corrosive (D002) due to sulfuric acid content. The chemical polishing process does not generate a listed waste if no electroplating or cyanides are used (SUPERSEDED: Memorandum, Dellinger to Waterman; May 18, 2007 (RO 14808)). Discarded baths from this process are hazardous wastes only if characteristic. Wastes that exhibit a characteristic at the point of generation may be subject to the Part 268 requirements even if they do not exhibit a characteristic at the point of disposal (261.3(d)(1)).
