NR 660.10(1) (1)“Above ground tank" means a device meeting the definition of “tank" in this section and that is situated in such a way that the entire surface area of the tank is completely above the plane of the adjacent surrounding surface and the entire surface area of the tank (including the tank bottom) is able to be visually inspected.
NR 660.10(2) (2)“Active life" of a facility means the period from the initial receipt of hazardous waste at the facility until the department receives certification of final closure.
NR 660.10(3) (3)“Active portion" means that portion of a facility where treatment, storage or disposal operations are being or have been conducted after August 1, 2006 and which is not a closed portion.

NR 660.10(3m) (3m) “Acute hazardous waste” means a hazardous waste that meets the listing criteria specified in s. NR 661.0011 (1) (b) and therefore is either listed in s. NR 661.0031 with the assigned hazard code of (H) or is listed in s. NR 661.0033 (5).
NR 660.10(3p) (3p) “AES filing compliance date” means the date that EPA announces in the Federal Register, on or after which exporters of hazardous waste and exporters of cathode ray tubes for recycling are required to file EPA information in the Automated Export System or its successor system, under the International Trade Data System, ITDS, platform.
NR 660.10(3t) (3t) “Airbag waste” means any hazardous waste airbag module or hazardous waste airbag inflator.
NR 660.10(3w) (3w) “Airbag waste collection facility” means any facility that receives airbag waste from an airbag waste handler subject to regulation under s. NR 661.0004 (10), and accumulates the waste for more than 10 days.
NR 660.10(3y) (3y) “Airbag waste handler” means any person, by site, who generates airbag waste that is subject to regulation under this chapter.
NR 660.10(4) (4)“Ancillary equipment" means any device including, but not limited to, such devices as piping, fittings, flanges, valves and pumps, that is used to distribute, meter or control the flow of hazardous waste from its point of generation to a storage or treatment tank or tanks, between hazardous waste storage and treatment tanks to a point of disposal onsite, or to a point of shipment for disposal off-site.
NR 660.10(5) (5)“Aquifer" means a geologic formation, group of formations or part of a formation capable of yielding a significant amount of ground water to wells or springs.
NR 660.10(6) (6)“Authorized representative" means the person responsible for the overall operation of a facility or an operational unit (i.e., part of a facility), e.g., the plant manager, superintendent or person of equivalent responsibility.
NR 660.10(7) (7)“Battery" means a device consisting of one or more electrically connected electrochemical cells which is designed to receive, store and deliver electric energy. An electrochemical cell is a system consisting of an anode, cathode and an electrolyte, plus such connections (electrical and mechanical) as may be needed to allow the cell to deliver or receive electrical energy. The term battery also includes an intact, unbroken battery from which the electrolyte has been removed.
NR 660.10(8) (8)“Boiler" means an enclosed device using controlled flame combustion and having all of the characteristics in par. (a) or the characteristic in par. (b):
NR 660.10(8)(a)1.1. The unit shall have physical provisions for recovering and exporting thermal energy in the form of steam, heated fluids or heated gases.
NR 660.10(8)(a)2. 2. The unit's combustion chamber and primary energy recovery sections shall be of integral design. To be of integral design, the combustion chamber and the primary energy recovery sections (such as waterwalls and superheaters) shall be physically formed into one manufactured or assembled unit. A unit in which the combustion chamber and the primary energy recovery sections are joined only by ducts or connections carrying flue gas is not integrally designed; however, secondary energy recovery equipment (such as economizers or air preheaters) need not be physically formed into the same unit as the combustion chamber and the primary energy recovery section. The following units are not precluded from being boilers solely because they are not of integral design: process heaters (units that transfer energy directly to a process stream), and fluidized bed combustion units.
NR 660.10(8)(a)3. 3. While in operation, the unit shall maintain a thermal energy recovery efficiency of at least 60%, calculated in terms of the recovered energy compared with the thermal value of the fuel.
NR 660.10(8)(a)4. 4. The unit shall export and utilize at least 75% of the recovered energy, calculated on an annual basis. In this calculation, no credit shall be given for recovered heat used internally in the same unit. (Examples of internal use are the preheating of fuel or combustion air, and the driving of induced or forced draft fans or feedwater pumps).
NR 660.10(8)(b) (b) The unit is one which the department has determined, on a case-by-case basis, to be a boiler, after considering the standards in s. NR 660.32.
NR 660.10(9) (9)“Carbon regeneration unit" means any enclosed thermal treatment device used to regenerate spent activated carbon.
NR 660.10(9m) (9m)“Cathode ray tube” or “CRT” means a vacuum tube, composed primarily of glass, which is the visual or video display component of an electronic device. A used, intact CRT means a CRT whose vacuum has not been released. A used, broken CRT means glass removed from its housing or casing whose vacuum has been released.
NR 660.10(9t) (9t)“Central accumulation area” means any on-site hazardous waste accumulation area with hazardous waste accumulating in units subject to either s. NR 662.016 for small quantity generators or s. NR 662.017 for large quantity generators. A central accumulation area at an eligible academic entity that chooses to operate is also subject to s. NR 662.211 when accumulating unwanted material or hazardous waste.
NR 660.10(10) (10)“Certification” means a statement of professional opinion based upon knowledge and belief.
NR 660.10(11) (11)“Closed portion" means that portion of a facility which an owner or operator has closed according to the approved facility closure plan and all applicable closure requirements.
NR 660.10 Note Note: See also “active portion" and “inactive portion."
NR 660.10(12) (12)“Component" means either the tank or ancillary equipment of a tank system.
NR 660.10(13) (13)“Confined aquifer" means an aquifer bounded above and below by impermeable beds or by beds of distinctly lower permeability than that of the aquifer itself; an aquifer containing confined ground water.
NR 660.10(13m) (13m)“Contained” means held in a unit, including a land-based unit as defined in this subchapter, that meets all of the following criteria:
NR 660.10(13m)(a) (a) The unit is in good condition, with no leaks or other continuing or intermittent unpermitted releases of the hazardous secondary material to the environment, and is designed, as appropriate for the hazardous secondary material, to prevent releases of hazardous secondary material into the environment. Unpermitted releases are releases that are not covered by a permit, such as a permit to discharge to water or air, and may include releases through surface transport by precipitation runoff, releases to soil and groundwater, wind-blown dust, fugitive air emissions, and catastrophic unit failures.
NR 660.10(13m)(b) (b) The unit is properly labeled or otherwise has a system, such as a log, to immediately identify the hazardous secondary material in the unit.
NR 660.10(13m)(c) (c) The unit holds hazardous secondary material that is compatible with other hazardous secondary material placed in the unit and is compatible with the materials used to construct the unit and addresses any potential risks of fires or explosions.
NR 660.10(13m)(d) (d) Hazardous secondary material in units that meet the applicable requirements under chs. NR 664 and 665 are presumptively contained for the purposes of this subsection.
