Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Connecticut adopts by reference the federal rules and exemptions for neutralizing hazardous waste under 40 CFR 260.10, including the federal facility permit exemption under 40 CFR 270.1(c)(2)(v).

The neutralization procedure involves making adjustments to the pH level of the corrosive waste so that it has a neutral value. The purpose is to alter the corrosive characteristic of the waste so that it is no longer hazardous and can be disposed of or treated as nonhazardous. For more information on neutralization, see the national section NEUTRALIZATION OF WASTES.

Note: The waste may still be hazardous if it has other characteristic properties, such as ignitability or toxicity. Examples of industries that might use neutralization of wastes are automobile industries that use acids for cleaning engine parts that create an acidic corrosive waste, and cleaning industries that use caustics in their operations that create an alkaline corrosive waste.

Administration and enforcement. DEEP administers and enforces the federal hazardous waste neutralization rules in Connecticut.
