D001
(Ignitable Waste) A waste is an ignitable waste if a representative sample of the waste has any of the following properties: 
(a) It is a liquid and has a flash point of less than 60C, which is approximately 140F. However, an aqueous solution of ethyl alcohol which contains less than 24% alcohol by volume will not be considered an ignitable waste.
(b) It is not a liquid and is capable under standard temperature and pressure of catching fire through friction, absorption of moisture or spontaneous chemical changes and, when ignited, burns so vigorously and persistently that it creates a hazard.
(c) It is a compressed gas and ignitable.
(d) It is an oxidizer (Oxidizers are not accepted at the EMI facility)
(Oxidizer means any material that yields oxygen readily to stimulate the combustion of organic matter, e.g., chlorate, permanganate, peroxide, nitrocarbonitrate, or inorganic nitrate.)

D002 (Corrosive Waste) A waste is a corrosive hazardous waste if a representative sample of the waste has any of the following properties: 
(a) It is aqueous and has a pH less than or equal to 2.
(b) It is aqueous and has a pH greater than or equal to 12.5.
(c) It is a liquid and corrodes steel (Type SAE 1020) at a rate greater than 6.35 mm per year at a test temperature of 55C. (This is approximately 0.250 inches per year at a test temperature of approximately 130F.)
