Title:PERMITTING OF MOLTEN SALT OXIDATION PROCESS
RCRA Online Number:14425
Date:03/10/2000
To:Termine
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:Molten Salt Oxidation Corporation
Description: Miscellaneous unit regulations specify environmental performance standards. Permitting agency will specify terms and provisions from other sections of regulations as technical standards. EPA expects permit writer to look to new maximum achievable control technology (MACT) incinerator air emissions standards for miscellaneous unit. Spent salt from molten salt oxidation (MSO) process may be hazardous waste via derived-from rule. Permitting authority may require risk assessment be completed. Heavy metals are of concern since they are not destroyed by treatment. Units treating waste containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) may need RCRA and TSCA permits in order to operate. Mixed waste is dually regulated in most states by both EPA and Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).
