Title:USED OIL FOR INDUSTRIAL BURNERS
RCRA Online Number:12738
Date:09/15/1986
To:Citizen
From:Hales
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: Burning on-specification used oil (UO) is not regulated, but the on-site burner must notify as a marketer if the first claim meets the specification. They must be able to demonstrate the UO meets specification. Lab analysis is a good way to demonstrate specification. Burning off-specification UO is regulated. It may only be burned in industrial devices (attachment describes lead banking and relationship between UO regulations and Clean Air Act regulations). A mixture of UO and hazardous waste (HW) is HW. Under the rebuttable presumption, at a 1000 ppm halogen concentration EPA will presume the UO has been mixed with a halogenated HW. The presumption can be rebutted by demonstrating that all halogens are inorganic.
