The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is working with the USEPA to
develop a national regulation for the appropriate methods of managing solvent
contaminated shop towels. The MPCA would like to find out if anyone has ever
conducted TCLP toxicity tests or ignitability tests on shop towels after the
solvent had been minimized by centrifuging, hand wringing, mechanical
wringing, mechanical compression, or any other active physical method.
Please let me know if you have any information we can forward to the
