Title Quantifying Excess Hazardous Materials at Hill Air Force Base April 2011.
Publication Date May 2011
Media Count 20p
Personal Author M. Cary
Abstract The issue and disposal of excess expired materials is of significant concern to Hill AFB and impacts many different environmental programs. A team of environmental personnel and UECs visited shops and inventoried the issued and in some cases even nonissued expired materials with scan guns. The UECs expressed concern about the possibility of over-reporting on various compliance reports as a result of having to dispose of excess expired material. While the issue of excess expired materials as a whole is large, issued unopened expired materials are of particular concern from a regulatory perspective. Once materials are issued from a Hazardous Distribution Service Center (HDSC) to a shop, they are considered consumed. If a portion of these materials are expiring before ever being used, there is a potential of over-reporting on various compliance reports. There were five distinct excess materials categories identified. The focus of this study are materials in Category 2: Materials that are issued to a shop, but are expired before being opened and used. Because they are considered consumed unopened issue, this is of particular concern from an air quality compliance perspective. To date, 4,471 issued containers have been scanned totaling 10,169 pounds of wasted material. This equates to 1,193 pounds of Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions which may have been inaccurately reported.
