Class Information
Number: 588
Name: Hazardous or toxic waste destruction or containment >
Description: This is the generic class for (1) hazardous or toxic waste destruction by any means to include, heating, chemical action, or the interaction with any form of radiation; (2) permanent containment of hazardous or toxic waste by methods to include storage in a simple container, solidification, vitrification, cementation, and more elaborate methods of storage such as marine, tetonic, or extraterrestrial storage; (3) hazardous or toxic waste conversion by any means (e.g., chemical, physical, etc.) to an environmentally safe substance; and (4) preparation for destruction or containment as well as the actual destruction or containment.
