(Acid) Waste Piping and its requirements are typically described/defined under your applicable plumbing code.
From our 2016 California Plumbing Code which is adopted from Uniform Plumbing Code:

Each waste pipe receiving or intended to receive the discharge of a fixture into which acid or corrosive chemical is placed, and each vent pipe connected thereto, shall be constructed of chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC), polypropylene (PP), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), chemical-resistant glass, high-silicon iron pipe, or lead pipe with a wall thickness of not less than 1Ú8 of an inch (3.2 mm); an approved type of ceramic glazed or unglazed vitrified clay; or other approved corrosion-resistant materials. PP pipe and fittings shall comply with ASTM F1412 or CSA B181.3. PVDF pipe and fittings shall comply with ASTM F1673 or CSA B181.3. Chemical-resistant glass pipe and fittings shall comply with ASTM C1053. High-silicon iron pipe and fittings shall comply with ASTM A861.

We are currently in the planning process for a College of Osteopathic Medicine. We were just sent a question in regards to some of the plumbing for the building, and I wanted to get some of your opinions.
"We are in the midst of finalizing the pricing with the contractor on the COM and they have offered a value engineering option I would like to get you feedback on. Please advise if this is an acceptable option.
