What is F019?

F019 is one of EPA’s F-code RCRA hazardous waste listings, which include wastes that are generated from common industrial and manufacturing processes. F019 wastes are generated from processes such as chromating, phosphating, metal coloring and/or immersion plating. F019 wastes are defined as wastewater treatment sludges from the chemical conversion coating of aluminum except from zirconium phosphating in aluminum can washing when such phosphating is an exclusive conversion coating process. The wastewater treatment sludges are generated from the treatment of the rinse and overflow wastewaters from the chemical conversion coating process.
