Organic waste - Corrosive Examples: non-halogenated solvent-acid mixtures, non-halogenated organic acids such as acetic acid, trichloroacetate, acetic anhydride. Organic waste - Non-halogenated plus water Examples: non-halogenated solvent-water mixtures or non-halogenated solvents with greater than 20% water such as 80% ethanol. Appendix III to Part - List of Halogenated Organic Compounds Regulated Under § In determining the concentration of HOCs in a hazardous waste for purposes of the § land disposal prohibition, EPA has defined the HOCs that must be included in a calculation as any compounds having a carbon-halogen bond which are listed in this. Halogenated compounds, such as methyl chloride (CH 3 Cl), methyl bromide (CH 3 Br) and methyl iodide (CH 3 I) are a major source of halogens in the atmosphere, and subsequently form sources of reactive species capable of catalytically destroying ozone. Among these CH 3 I is likely to play an important role in the budget of tropospheric ozone, through production of iodine .

A book designation can only be done when the generator has sufficient knowledge of the waste to identify its contents and amounts. Toxicity criteria and book designation are addressed in Chapter 3. There are two categories of Persistent dangerous wastes: halogenated organic compounds (HOC) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH).File Size: 1MB.

Wastes Division.]. (i) The DW bioassay. To determine if a waste is DW, a person must establish the toxicity category range of a waste by means of the mg/L acute static fish test or the mg/kg oral rat test, as described in the biological testing methods (bioassay) adopted in WAC (3). If data from the test indicates that the waste is DW, then the person will assign the dangerous waste .
C.P. Gerba, in Environmental and Pollution Science (Third Edition), Halogenated Hydrocarbons. Halogenated hydrocarbons are common because they are widely used as effective, yet relatively nonflammable solvents, unlike kerosene or gasoline. Halogenated hydrocarbons are also formed during the chlorination of drinking water when chlorine . The flammability of these materials is variable. The low-molecular-weight materials (gases and liquids) are generally dangerously flammable. However, many halogenated organic compounds of high molecular weight, in particular those containing several halogen atoms per molecule, are nonflammable; some are in fact used as fire retardants. All of the listed halogenated organic solvents, except 1,1,2-trichloro-l,2,2-trif 1uoro- ethane, are priority pollutants under Section (a) of the CWA. A number of the non-halogenated organic solvents also exhibit toxicity properties. For example, nitrobenzene has been identified as a suspect carcinogen. This book covers the principles and practices of technologies for the control of pollution originating from organic wastes (e.g. human faeces and urine, wastewater, solid wastes, animal manure and agro-industrial wastes) and the recycling of these organic wastes into valuable products such as fertilizer, biofuels, algal and fish protein and.
