What to Do When Your Hazardous Waste Isn’t Hazardous AnymoreWhen we talk about hazardous waste, we usually talk about EPA’s “cradle-to-grave” management requirements. But what if your hazardous waste stops being hazardous waste at some point in the process? How do change the way you manage it without running afoul of the RCRA regulations?
Control Your Chemical InventoryOne of the primary objectives of the US EPA's major hazardous waste program, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), is to conserve valuable materials and energy sources by reducing, reusing, and recycling. The "three Rs" are not just a catch phrase; they're an official national policy in the United States enacted by Congress. In the US, whenever feasible, the waste generation is to be reduced or eliminated. [42 USC 6902(b)]...
Recycling, Reusing, and Reclaiming Hazardous WasteEPA's new Definition of Solid Waste Final Rule makes major changes to the recycling provisions of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Understanding the requirements for recycling, reusing, and reclaiming your site's hazardous waste is critical, especially for EHS and shipping professionals who sign the Hazardous Waste Manifest...
RCRA Workshop Helps Manufacturers With “Zero Landfill” InitiativesAt manufacturing and industrial facilities nationwide, managing hazardous waste can be a burdensome and expensive responsibility. Compliance professionals must manage their waste to exacting standards and pay to have the waste hauled away, treated, and disposed of safely. In addition to these management, treatment, and disposal rules, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requires...
Reusing Waste and Avoiding Sham RecyclingTo encourage recycling and keep more hazardous waste out of landfills and the ecosystem, the US EPA established the “reuse relief” in its hazardous waste regulations. The relief, found at 40 CFR 261.2(e), excludes certain materials from the definition of solid waste when they are reused in a beneficial way. In general, the exclusion applies when an otherwise hazardous waste is reused in one of three ways...
Management Strategies for Using RCRA ExclusionsAt first glance, managing hazardous waste in a way that relieves the generator from some RCRA regulations may seem very appealing. In some cases though, these management strategies may not provide as much relief as initially believed and may make subsequent management decisions even more difficult. One scenario that raises this challenge is the EPA’s exclusion for certain de-characterized hazardous wastes...
Cutting Costs With Life Cycle AssessmentLife Cycle Assessment is a critical tool for organizations seeking ways to reduce their environmental impact, manage waste more efficiently, and reduce compliance costs. Also called life cycle analysis or “cradle-to-grave” analysis, a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is designed to gauge how a product will impact the environment throughout its life—from the initial sourcing of raw materials to eventual waste disposal...

Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.

Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
