Ultimate Destruction

“Ultimate destruction” means the treatment of a deleterious substance such that both its weight and volume remaining for disposal have been substantially reduced, and there is no demonstrated process or technology commercially available to further reduce its weight and volume and remove or reduce its harmful properties, if any. For the purposes of demonstrating a substantial reduction in weight and volume, any aqueous portion separated from the balance of a waste that meets drinking water standards or is evaporated into the ambient air shall count toward the weight and volume reduction.
