Modernizing Ignitable Liquids Determinations
SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA or the Agency) is proposing to update the regulations for the identification of ignitable hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and to modernize the RCRA test methods that currently require the use of mercury thermometers. These proposed revisions would provide greater clarity to hazardous waste identification, provide flexibility in testing requirements, improve environmental compliance, and, thereby, enhance protection of human health and the environment.
