(2) Aboveground used oil tank system means any tank system that is not an underground tank system.

(8) Existing tank means a tank that is used for the storage or processing of used oil and that is in operation, or for which installation has commenced on or prior to January 14, 1995. Installation will be considered to have commenced if the owner or operator has obtained all Federal, State, and local approvals or permits necessary to begin installation of the tank and if either:

(15) Processing means chemical or physical operations designed to produce from used oil, or to make used oil more amenable for production of fuel oils, lubricants, or other used oil-derived product. Processing includes, but is not limited to: blending used oil with virgin petroleum products, blending used oils to meet the fuel specification, filtration, simple distillation, chemical or physical separation and re-refining.
(16) Release means any intentional or unintentional action or omission resulting in the releasing, spilling, leaking, pumping, pouring, emitting, emptying or dumping of used oil into the waters of the State or onto lands from which it might flow or drain into said waters, or into waters outside the jurisdiction of the State when damage may result to lands, waters, or natural resources within the jurisdiction of the State.
(17) Re-refining distillation bottoms means the heavy fraction produced by vacuum distillation of filtered and dehydrated used oil. The composition of still bottoms varies with column operation and feedstock.
(18) Retail means the sale of lubricating oil to consumers in containers of five gallons or less for direct use by the consumer and not offered for resale.

(25) Underground used oil tank means any one or combination of tanks (including any piping connected thereto) that is used to contain an accumulation of used oil, the volume of which (including the volume of underground pipes connected thereto) is 10 percent or more beneath the surface of the ground. This term does not include a tank system situated in an “accessible underground area.”
(26) Used oil means any oil that has been refined from crude oil, or any synthetic oil, that has been used, and as a result of such use, is contaminated by physical or chemical impurities.
(27) Used oil aggregation point means any site or facility that accepts, aggregates, and/or stores used oil collected only from other used oil generation sites owned or operated by the owner or operator of the aggregation point, from which used oil is transported to the aggregation point in shipments of no more than 55 gallons. Used oil aggregation points may also accept used oil from household do-it-yourselfers.
(28) Used oil burner means a facility where used oil not meeting the specification requirements in section 374-2.2(b)(1) of this Subpart is burned for energy recovery in devices identified in section 374-2.7(b) of this Subpart.
(29) Used oil collection center means any site or facility that is recognized by this department pursuant to section 374-2.4(b)(2) of this Subpart, to manage used oil, and accepts/aggregates and stores used oil collected from used oil generators regulated under section 374-2.3 of this Subpart, who bring used oil to the collection center in shipments of no more than 55 gallons under the provisions of section 374-2.3(e) of this Subpart.
