Texas Adopts 3 Recent RCRA Revisions
The hazardous waste rules Texas adopted are found on page 3780 of the document linked above.
Comparable Fuels ExclusionIn 2015, EPA made two significant revisions to the regulations concerning comparable fuels and gasification rules. EPA removed the comparable fuels exclusion from 40 CFR 261.4(a)(16) and 261.38.
Secondly, the oil-bearing hazardous secondary material exclusion at 40 CFR 261.4(a)(12) was revised by removing gasification from the list of specific petroleum refining processes into which oil-bearing hazardous secondary materials may be inserted.
Hazardous Waste Import-ExportThe 40 CFR regulations related to the import and export of hazardous waste changed in 2016. The changes make the RCRA regulations in 40 CFR Part 262 more consistent with the standards of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
The rulemaking also enables electronic submittal to EPA or import and export related documents like export notices and export annual reports.
Defective or Recalled AirbagsIn November 2018, EPA published an Interim Final Rule to exempt defective airbags and airbag inflators from the RCRA hazardous waste management requirements. The rule aims to facilitate the return of defective or recalled airbag inflators from car dealerships, salvage yards, and other locations.

The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!

The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
