Title:REGULATORY STATUS OF PCB-CONTAINING USED OIL
RCRA Online Number:14606
Date:06/18/2002
To:Gunzelman
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:U.S. Liquids, Inc.
Description: Used oil burned for energy recovery that meets the fuel specifications in 279.11 is not regulated under Part 279, provided certain marketer conditions are met and the used oil is not mixed or contaminated with hazardous waste. The presence of PCBs in used oil is not relevant to the determination of whether the used oil meets the Part 279 specifications, but it is relevant for determining applicability to Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) regulations. TSCA establishes a presumption that detectable quantities of PCBs are present in used oils burned for energy recovery. The presumption can be overcome if the marketer determines that the used oil does not contain quantifiable levels of PCBs. Used oil burned for energy recovery that contains less than 2 ppm PCBs is solely regulated under RCRA.
