SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ExxonMobil submitted a petition under 40 CFR 260.20 and 260.22(a).

Section 260.22(a) specifically PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 24925 provides generators the opportunity to petition the Administrator to exclude a waste on a ‘‘generator specific’’ basis from the hazardous waste lists. EPA bases its proposed decision to grant the petition on an evaluation of waste-specific information provided by the petitioner. This decision, if finalized, would conditionally exclude the petitioned waste from the requirements of hazardous waste regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). If finalized, EPA would conclude that ExxonMobil’s petitioned waste is nonhazardous with respect to the original listing criteria. EPA would also conclude that ExxonMobil’s process minimizes short-term and long-term threats from the petitioned waste to human health and the environment.
