Description: The BIF rule supersedes the sham recycling policy of a minimum 5000 Btu/lb heating value for waste (56 FR 7183; February 2, 1991). A product is waste-derived if a furnace burns hazardous waste fuels with a heating values less than 5000 Btu/lb, unless the facility demonstrates legitimate energy recovery, or unless the is waste is excluded via the use in a manner constituting disposal standards in Section 266.20(b). The minimum fuel value is determined on an as-generated, not as-fired basis. Blending to augment the as-generated heating value cannot be used to pass threshold. The heating value can be increased through legitimate treatment.
