< > Effective - 28 Aug 1988    bottom

  260.393.  Technology for treatment of hazardous waste, generators to use best available, exceptions. — 1.  This section shall not apply to the storage or treatment of hazardous waste by a generator on-site or to the transportation of hazardous waste out of state for treatment, storage or disposal.

  2.  Generators shall use, to the maximum extent feasible, the best demonstrated available technology for source reduction, recycling, treatment, stabilization, solidification or destruction, including, but not limited to, biodegradation, detoxification, incineration and neutralization before placing waste in a hazardous waste disposal facility.  Such hazardous waste may be placed in a hazardous waste disposal facility only after the generator evaluates appropriate technologies and employs those capable of reducing, recycling, treating, stabilizing, solidifying or destroying the waste.  In assessing the best demonstrated available technology proposed by a generator, the department shall give consideration to the relative economic feasibility of the technology, including potential future costs of cleanup and environmental damage.  Such technology shall render the hazardous waste sufficiently low in toxicity, reactivity and corrosivity as to present the least possible risk to human health and safety and to the environment in the event of a release from a hazardous waste disposal facility before placing hazardous waste in a disposal facility.
