The Ebro River Basin

The Ebro is a standard Mediterranean river characterised by way of seasonal low flows and severe flush results, with very important agricultural and commercial task that has triggered heavy infection difficulties. This quantity bargains with soil-sediment-groundwater similar concerns within the Ebro river basin and summarizes the consequences generated in the ecu Union-funded venture AquaTerra.

Includes, but is not limitedto, cleaners, degreasers, lubricants, fuels, and chemicals used for treating wastes. EXAMPLE 7: Activltles and Uses of Toxic Chemicals In the example below, it is assumed that the threshold quantities for manufacture, process, or otherwise use (25,000 pounds, 25,000 pounds, and 10,000pounds, respectively, for 1989) have been exceeded and the reporting of listed chemicals is therefore required. Yourfacility receivestolueneand naphthalene (bothlisted toxic chemicals) from an off-site location.

For all practical purposes, separate businessunits. Therefore, individualestablishments may report separately, provided that the total release is reported for the whole facility is represented by the sum of releases reported by the separate establishments. , research and development laboratories, warehouses, storage facilities, and waste-treatment facilities). An auxiliary facility can take on the SIC code of another covered facility if its primary function is to service that other covered facility's operations.

However, the use of the lead acid battery elsewhere in the facility does not have to be counted. Disposal of the battery after its use does not constitute a "release"; thus, the battery remains an article. 0 Metal rods that are extruded into wire are not articles because their form changes during processing. 27 Manufacturina Qualifiers. Two of the entries to the section 3 13 chemical list contain a qualifier relating to manufacture. " For isopropyl alcohol, the qualifier means that only facilities which manufacture isopropyl alcohol by the strong acid process are required to report.
