Title:RECLAMATION OF MATERIAL RECOVERED FROM CRUDE OIL STORAGE TANKS
RCRA Online Number:14777
Date:08/23/2007
To:Segal
From:Dellinger
Organization of Recipient:Bracewell & Giuliani
Description: Crude oil tank sediment from petroleum refining operations is listed hazardous waste K169. If the tank is located at or affiliated with a petroleum refinery, and the tank materials are reclaimed on-site at the petroleum refinery, the generated residuals would meet the K169 listing. Crude oil tank materials sent for legitimate reclamation would not be a solid waste. Residuals generated from off-site reclamation would represent a new point of generation, would not meet the K169 listing, and would only need to be assessed for hazardous waste characteristics. No listings apply to discarded tank sediments for crude oil storage not located or affiliated with a petroleum refinery.
