As used in this subpart:
(a) For the sintering subcategory, the term product means sinter agglomerated from iron-bearing materials.

(c) The term minimum level (ML) means the level at which the analytical system gives recognizable signals and an acceptable calibration point. For 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzofuran, the minimum level is 10 pg/L per EPA Method 1613B for water and wastewater samples.
(d) The term pg/L means picograms per liter (ppt = 1.0 × 10-12 gm/L).
