Document Description
It has been determined that these items are, or may be highly reactive and ignitable and must be stabilized prior to being transported off site. These items are currently being stored at the Novartis facility in Emeryville, CA. Because Novartis does not have a permit for the treatment of hazardous waste, DTSC has determined as a safety precaution to prevent an accident or severe injury, an Emergency Permit should be issued to chemically stabilize the hazardous waste prior to transportation off site by Clean Harbors Environmental Services (CHES). The treatment of the hazardous waste involves the addition of a solvent or water to the containers to reduce the reactive or ignitable characteristics of the chemicals.
