Hazardous Waste Generators! Are You Excited for EPA’s New
RCRA Rule? 
Katie Childs, Compliance Manager, August Mack Environmental
March 29, 2017; 2:00 PM - 2:45 PM - REGISTER NOW!
EPA published new RCRA requirements on November 28, 2016 to make substantial changes to the first enacted rule of 1981. The initial rule may cause confusion but EPA’s intent is to update the regulations so it is easier for generators to understand and implement. Two key provisions brought up in this new regulation are: allowing for episodic events to be managed under the same generator status as long as they are properly managed, as well as allowing very small quantity generator (VSQG) to transport hazardous waste to a large quantity generator as long as it’s under the control of the same person.

ILMA Partners with Argus to Offer an Exclusive Benefit for ILMA Members

The US base oils market continues to face major structural changes. These are creating challenges and opportunities and increase the importance of timely information and analysis to take advantage of these changes. More domestic US production, combined with increased imports of Group III supplies, has added to the oversupply of light-grade base oils. Several rounds of planned and unplanned refinery maintenance and increased exports have helped to balance the US base oil market in recent years. But those trends have—at times—limited the availability of certain light and heavy grades in the domestic market. At other times, they have resulted in surplus availability. 

Exclusive ILMA member benefit:
ILMA has partnered with Argus to provide its members with complimentary one-year access to the new, Argus Americas Base Oils. This report offers an essential weekly overview of the Americas base oil market, including:

  • All North American producer posted prices, including those unavailable in other market reports
  • Robust commentary and news covering the US and Latin American markets, and analysis of the reasons for and implications of that market activity
  • Up-to-date base oil plant maintenance and shutdown information to help gage current and future supply availability
  • Tables and graphs tracking market fundamentals like US base oil production, supply and demand, imports and exports and other tools to help identify buying and selling opportunities
  • ...PLUS more.
