Title:REGULATORY INTERPRETATIONS UNDER RCRA CONCERNING CERTAIN FUEL BLENDING SCENARIOS
RCRA Online Number:11885
Date:11/08/1994
To:Kotlinski
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:CleanHarbors Environmental Services, Inc.
Description: The 1991 BIF rules superseded the sham recycling policy for hazardous waste fuels, so an as-generated heating value no longer affects the legality of fuel blending prior to burning in BIFs, but it may affect the status of the product created in a BIF. If fuels with low heating values are burned, cement may be considered a waste-derived product and subject to hazardous waste regulation if it is destined for land placement, unless the facility demonstrates legitimate energy recovery. If gravity separates hazardous waste fuel into aqueous and organic phases during storage, mixing the phases together again is not treatment. Decanting the two phases or portions of fuel is treatment.
