Under Section 301 of the Resources Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), EPA's Office of Solid Waste is required to develop and promulgate criteria for identifying and listing hazardous wastes, taking into account, among other factors, persistence and degradability in the environment of selected chemicals. A requirement of the legislation is for EPA to take an initial step toward defining wastes that do not merit regulation under Subtitle C of RCRA and can be managed under other regimes. For establishing exemption criteria, the Agency has selected some 200 chemical constituents that may occur in the various wastes. The report explains some of the means by which these chemicals may be transformed and provides hydrolysis degradation pathways and fate constants for the selected chemicals.
