Title:USE OF INDUSTRIAL HAZARDOUS AND NON-HAZARDOUS WASTES AS FEEDSTOCK FOR A CATALYTIC EXTRACTION PROCESSING (CEP) UNIT
RCRA Online Number:11985
Date:04/12/1996
To:Jones
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:Molten Metal Technology
Description: A catalytic extraction process (CEP) using listed hazardous waste (HW) feedstock to produce synthesis gas (syngas) may be legitimate recycling. A legitimate recycling determination is left to the implementing agency. Once a determination is made, the implementing agency must determine if the HW feedstock is exempt for use/reuse. The exemption does not apply if the resulting product is burned for energy recovery, used to make fuel (261.2(e)(2)(ii)), or used in a manner constituting disposal. Residuals from the CEP are not regulated if they are not listed or characteristic. Listed or characteristic residuals would be a newly generated waste. The current regulations do not characterize HW-derived fuels based on a comparison to product fuels. EPA has proposed a comparable fuels exclusion and syngas exemption (SEE ALSO: the exclusion was finalized 63 FR 33782; 6/19/98).
