Underground Injection Control Program; Hazardous Waste Injection 
Restrictions; Petition for Exemption Reissuance--Class I Hazardous 
Waste Injection; INEOS Nitriles USA LLC (INEOS)--Green Lake Complex, 
Port Lavaca, Texas

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of a final decision on a no migration petition 


SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that a reissuance of an exemption to 
the land disposal Restrictions, under the 1984 Hazardous and Solid 
Waste Amendments to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, has 
been granted to INEOS for three Class I hazardous waste injection wells 
located at their Green Lake Complex located in Port Lavaca, Texas. The 
company has adequately demonstrated to the satisfaction of the 
Environmental Protection Agency by the petition reissuance application 
and supporting documentation that, to a reasonable degree of certainty, 
there will be no migration of hazardous constituents from the injection 
zone for as long as the waste remains hazardous. This final decision 
allows the underground injection by INEOS, of the specific restricted 
hazardous wastes identified in this exemption reissuance, into Class I 
hazardous waste injection Wells WDW-163, WDW-164, and WDW-165 until 
December 31, 2017, unless EPA moves to terminate this exemption. 
Additional conditions included in this final decision may be reviewed 
by contacting the Region 6 Ground Water/UIC Section. A public notice 
was issued March 16, 2016, and the public comment period closed on May 
2, 2016. No comments were received. This decision constitutes final 
Agency action and there is no Administrative appeal. This decision may 
be reviewed/appealed in compliance with the Administrative Procedure 

DATES: This action is effective as of May 16, 2016.
