FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Pursuant to 40 CFR 260.20 and 260.22, facilities may petition
EPA to remove their waste streams from Subtitle C regulation by
excluding them from the lists of hazardous wastes in Sections 261.31 and
261.32.   Who approves or denies the delisting petitions?
 
On October 10, 1995, the EPA Administrator formally delegated
delisting authority to the Regional Administrators.  However,
states authorized to administer a delisting program in lieu of
the federal program may also approve or deny delisting petitions
(61 FR 32798; June 25, 1996).
 
Do the P and U lists apply to chemicals that have been used in a
manufacturing process?
 
The P and U lists apply only to commercial chemical products
(CCPs), off-specification species, container residues, and spill
residues from chemicals having the generic name listed in Section
261.33.  Commercial chemical products do not include a material
that contains a substance on the P or U list (e.g., a
manufacturing process waste).  Commercial chemical products are
chemical substances manufactured or formulated for commercial or
manufacturing use that consist of the commercially pure grade of
the chemical, any technical grades of the chemical that are
produced or marketed, and all formulations in which the chemical
is the sole active ingredient (Section 261.33(d)).  The P and U lists do
not apply to chemicals that have been used for their intended
purpose (54 FR 31335, 31336; July 28, 1989).
 
What is the Greenscapes Alliance Program?
 
The Greenscapes Alliance Program is a partnership program that is
part of the Resource Conservation Challenge (RCC).  The
Greenscapes Alliance Program focuses on flexible ways to conserve
natural resources and prevent waste generation by reducing,
reusing, and recycling materials used during landscaping
projects.
 
May a Native American tribe participate in Superfund response
actions?
 
A Native American tribe is afforded substantially the same
treatment as states during the response process, assuming they
meet certain criteria.  First, the tribe must be federally
recognized.  Second, the tribe must have a tribal government body
that is currently performing government functions to promote the
health, safety, and welfare of the affected population or
environment within a defined geographic area.  Third, the tribe
must have jurisdiction over a site at which fund-financed
response is being considered (Section 300.515(b)).
 
What are the requirements for owners and operators of UST systems
to clean up and report a spill or overfill?
 
Owners and operators of UST systems must contain and immediately
clean up any spill or overfill and report the release within
twenty-four hours, or another reasonable time period, to the
implementing agency.  In addition, owners or operators must begin
corrective action if there is a spill or overfill that results in
a release to the environment of petroleum that exceeds twenty-
five gallons or of a hazardous substance that equals or exceeds a
reportable quantity (Section 280.53).
 
 
CALL CENTER QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
 
RCRA
 
1. Interstate Shipments of Waste Listed Solely for
   Ignitability, Corrosivity, or Reactivity
 
 A facility is located in a state that is authorized for the
revisions to the mixture and derived-from rules promulgated in
the hazardous waste identification rule (HWIR-Waste Rule).
According to the HWIR-Waste Rule, a waste listed solely for the
characteristic of ignitability, reactivity, or corrosivity, that
no longer exhibits any hazardous characteristic does not need to
be managed as hazardous waste (66 FR 27266, 27269; May 16, 2001).
The facility generates a spent solvent meeting the listing
description for F003, which is listed solely for ignitability
(Section 261.31).  The waste, however, does not exhibit a hazardous
waste characteristic and is managed as nonhazardous waste.  The
spent solvent is shipped across state lines for disposal in a
state that has not adopted the HWIR-Waste Rule.  What regulations
apply to the transportation and disposal of that waste?
 
 While traveling through the receiving state and any other state
that recognizes the waste as hazardous, the transporter must have
an EPA identification number, a manifest must accompany the
waste, and the waste must be shipped in compliance with the
requirements in Part 263 (67 FR 40507, 40520; June 12, 2002).
The treatment, storage, or disposal facility is subject to the
standards of the state where it is located.  A state can only
apply its regulations to facilities that are within its
jurisdiction (i.e., facilities within state borders).  It is the
generator's responsibility to know the requirements of the state
where the waste will be managed.  In most cases, the generator
simply has to ask a potential receiving disposal facility if it
is allowed by its implementing agency to accept and manage the
generator's waste (55 FR 2322, 2345; January 23, 1990).
 
 A generator in a state that has adopted the revisions to the
mixture and derived-from rules may manage F003 waste that does
not exhibit a characteristic as nonhazardous waste, but the waste
must be managed as hazardous by a disposal facility that is
located in a state that has not adopted the rule.  In this
example, the receiving state has not adopted the HWIR-Waste Rule;
therefore, the waste remains hazardous and must be managed by a
hazardous waste treatment, storage, or disposal facility.  It is
important to note that states are not required to adopt the HWIR-
Waste Rule because the revisions are less stringent than the
existing regulations (66 FR 27266, 27293; May 16, 2001).
 
EPCRA
 
2. EPCRA Sections 311 and 312 Frequently Asked Questions
 
Ammonia vs. Ammonium Hydroxide
 
Question: Ammonia (CAS number 7664-41-7) is an EPCRA extremely
hazardous substance (EHS) listed in Appendix A to Part 355.
However, ammonium hydroxide, which is made by combining ammonia
and water, is not listed and has a separate CAS number (CAS
number 1336-21-6).  For the purpose of Part 370, must the amount
of ammonia in ammonium hydroxide be counted (and aggregated)
towards the 500 pound EHS threshold?  For example, if a facility
has 9000 pounds of ammonium hydroxide (19 percent) on site at a given
time, while the 10,000 pound threshold for ammonium hydroxide is
not exceeded, the amount of ammonia present in the solution (1710
pounds) would exceed the EHS's threshold of 500 pounds.  Does
this facility have to include ammonia in its 311 and 312
reports?
 
Answer: The EHS list in Part 355 is defined by reference to the
CAS registry number.  The CAS registry considers ammonia and
ammonium hydroxide as distinct chemicals, each having a registry
number.  Therefore, ammonia completely dissolved in aqueous
solution to form ammonium hydroxide is not an extremely hazardous
substance for the purposes of EPCRA 311 and 312 reporting. The
facility would report only if the amount of ammonium hydroxide
exceeds 10,000 lbs.
 
Acid Mixtures
 
Question: Do you apply the whole weight of an acid mixture
towards the threshold under EPCRA Sections 311 and 312 or just the
percentage of acid stated on the material safety data sheet
(MSDS)?
 
Answer: Aqueous acids are considered mixtures under EPCRA Sections 311
and 312.  The acid itself is the hazardous chemical mixed with
water when in solution.  If the MSDS for a hazardous chemical
which is not an EHS provides percent concentration information,
the facility may use the percentage of acid stated to determine
if thresholds have been met for that component.  If no
information is given, or if the facility is applying the
threshold to the mixture as a whole, it must apply the entire
amount of the mixture towards the threshold.  For acids which are
extremely hazardous substances (e.g., sulfuric acid), the
facility must determine if the thresholds have been met for that
component.
 
Different Physical States
 
Question: A facility is required to keep two MSDSs on file for
the same hazardous chemical (oxygen); one for the gas phase and
one for liquid phase because they present different risks.  Would
the same chemical present at a facility in different physical
states be aggregated for threshold determinations?
 
Answer: The applicability of EPCRA Sections 311 and 312 is based on an
owner or operator having a threshold quantity of a hazardous
chemical present at the facility.  Thresholds are based on the
amount of hazardous chemical on site, rather than the type of
hazard presented by the chemical in various phases.  The fact
that a facility has two or more MSDSs for different phases of a
hazardous chemical does not mean that these phases are considered
different hazardous chemicals.  In this case, oxygen is a single
hazardous chemical.  Even if a facility receives multiple MSDSs
for oxygen because it is provided by different suppliers, or is
received in different phases presenting different risks, the
facility must aggregate all quantities of the oxygen present at
the facility for threshold determinations.
 
Facility Definition and "Motor Vehicles"
 
Question: The definition of "facility" for EPCRA Sections 311 and 312
does not include "motor vehicles, rolling stock and aircraft."
Do hazardous chemicals present in cars, trucks, forklifts and
other vehicles need to be considered for Sections 311 and 312 reporting
as present in the "facility?"
 
Answer: Hazardous chemicals present in vehicles that are part of
a facility, because they are used for activities within the
facility or held for sale by the facility, would be considered
for purposes of Part 370 because the chemicals would be
considered "present at the facility."  However, exemptions may
apply to the chemicals in such vehicles, such as the personal or
household product exemption under Section 311(e)(3) for some car
batteries.  The Section 311 and 312 requirements would not apply to
chemicals present in vehicles that are not part of a facility
because they are engaged in transportation and are exempt as
chemicals in transportation under 327.  For example, hazardous
chemicals in a forklift used only within the facility would need
to be considered, while chemicals in delivery trucks parked
occasionally at the facility for unloading would not.
 
Ammonia Sales at Farm Suppliers
 
Question: A farm supply company sells ammonia as a fertilizer to
farmers.  Is the ammonia, when held by the farm supplier, exempt
from EPCRA Sections 311 and 312 reporting?
 
Answer: EPCRA Section 311(e)(5) exempts "any substance to the extent it
is used in routine agricultural operations or is a fertilizer
held for sale by a retailer to the ultimate customer" from Sections 311
and 312 reporting.  Since the farmer is the ultimate customer of
the fertilizer (i.e., ammonia) the ammonia that the supplier
keeps to sell to farmers would not need to be reported under Sections 
311 and 312 by the farm supplier.  Note that this exemption
applies to the chemical and not the facility as a whole.  For
example, where the supplier also sells ammonia to other
suppliers, or where the supplier also uses the ammonia as a
blending ingredient to make other products, those ammonia amounts
are not exempt.
