Abstract : Alkaline (Alk), Leclanche (LCE) (i.e., C-Zn), lithium-manganese dioxide (Li-MnO2), lithium-sulfur dioxide (Li-SO2), lithium-thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl2), and magnesium (MG) batteries were analyzed under federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and state bioassay requirements in order to determine their hazardous waste (HW) characterization. MG and Li-SOCl2 batteries were found to be HW under RCRA for chromium (DOO7). Li-MnO2, Alk, LC, and Li-SOCl2 batteries were found to be HW under bioassay requirements. Only completely discharged Li-SO2 batteries were found to be non-hazardous solid waste under both HW identification criteria.
