WASHINGTON, D.C. – AFPM released the following statement in response to the Senate's passage yesterday of S. 1982, the Save Our Seas Act 2.0.
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) gives the EPA authority to control hazardous waste. This includes the generation, transportation, treatment, storage and disposal of this waste. The Act also created a framework for the management of non-hazardous solid wastes. AFPM believes RCRA should allow for the recycling of spent catalysts at refineries and enable the recycling of other waste streams that would still have value if recycled.
