Hazardous Waste Management System; Identification and Listing of Hazardous Waste; Removal of Final Rule
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is removing its final rule to grant a petition submitted by Tokusen U.S.A, Inc. to exclude (or delist) a certain F006 filter cake generated by its Conway, Arkansas Plant from the lists of hazardous wastes. This rule removes the final rule published in 67 FR 79874 (December 31, 2002). The EPA has received data from the facility indicating that the waste currently generated is no longer representative of the waste for which the petition was submitted. EPA acknowledges these changes and has requested that Tokusen withdraw its petition. Tokusen may submit a new delisting petition for the waste stream at any time.
