Title:EXCLUSION FROM RCRA REGULATION FOR SECONDARY MATERIALS USED OR REUSED DIRECTLY AS INGREDIENTS IN AN INDUSTRIAL PROCESS
RCRA Online Number:11856
Date:07/20/1994
To:Ferguson
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission
Description: The heating value of a secondary material inserted in a sulfuric acid regeneration furnace determines if the activity is excluded use or reuse, or burning for energy recovery subject to Part 266, Subpart H. Generally, waste with a heating value at or above 5000 Btu/lb is considered burned as fuel. Hazardous waste burned in a BIF for metals recovery is exempt under 266.100(c) only if the device burns the waste exclusively for metals recovery and not partially for destruction or energy recovery. A secondary material with high sulfur content burned in a sulfuric acid regeneration furnace is not eligible for the 261.4(a)(7) exclusion because the secondary material in question is not spent sulfuric acid.
