Last week, the Environmental Daily Advisor discussed universal wastes, spill prevention, control and countermeasure (SPCC), and TRI reporting related to hydrogen sulfide.Here's the Environmental Daily Advisor week in review.
Universal waste: Do the regulations apply to you?--Universal wastes are certain hazardous wastes that are generated by large numbers of businesses in relatively small amounts.
Universal waste: A better way to manage--Under the universal waste rule, these identified hazardous wastes remain hazardous wastes but are not collected and managed in compliance with the full hazardous waste rules.
SPCC: 10 things you may not know--At a recent storage tank conference, EPA gave a really detailed, 3-hour review of spill prevention, control, and countermeasure (SPCC) regulations and best practices. Here are some things you may not know about SPCC.
Benefits of qualifying for the SPCC Tier Program-- According to EPA, 66 percent of the more than 650,000 regulated facilities are Tier II facilities and are eligible to more streamlined SPCC requirements.
Hydrogen sulfide and TRI--In October 2011 EPA lifted the stay on the requirement to report H2S releases.
