"I picked up my spills with an olefin or clay based absorbent. Isn't that good enough?"

Amendments to the RCRA regulations enacted on November 8, 1994 prohibit land burial of free liquids, and liquids absorbed on biodegradable substrates or materials that release liquids under pressure.

Absorbing a spill of an acid or alkali leaves behind material just as corrosive, toxic, and reactive as before. Absorbents DO NOT CHANGE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A WASTE! The absorbed waste MUST be neutralized and solidified before landfill burial! If you don't do it, your waste management company must. And they will CHARGE for this treatment, at quite a rate.failure to dispose of these materials properly can lead to severe fines.

This bar graph below demonstrates the retention abilities of solidification vs. absorption. Only the solidified OMNI compounds offer proper retention to meet new regulations for secure land burial.
