Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Utah follows the federal rules and exemptions for the neutralization of hazardous wastes. Treatment of corrosive wastes in an elementary neutralization unit (ENU) exempts facility owners and operators from needing a hazardous waste treatment permit and from complying with the regulations applicable to hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities, provided they meet conditions of the permit exemption. In addition, generators neutralizing their corrosive wastes immediately on-site in an ENU do not need to count such wastes in their monthly determination of how much hazardous waste has been generated.
• Administration and enforcement. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control administers and enforces the waste neutralization rules in Utah.
