Title:REGULATORY STATUS OF TREATMENT ASSOCIATED WITH FUEL-BLENDING ACTIVITIES
RCRA Online Number:13651
Date:01/28/1994
To:Downs
From:McAlister
Organization of Recipient:Utah Division of Solid and Hazardous Waste
Description: The definition of treatment has been upheld in court. Adding materials (e.g., sodium hydroxide) to a waste during fuel blending meets the definition of treatment. Physical manipulation, commingling or consolidation of wastes, distillation to remove contaminants, and processing to remove components (e.g., to accomplish phase separation) could all meet the definition of treatment. The waste treatment codes T50 (blending), T54 (distillation), and T63 (solvent recovery) identified in Part 264 Appendix I are used to identify handling techniques, not to identify all the activities requiring a permit or constituting treatment.
