Title:REGULATION OF FUEL BLENDING AND RELATED TREATMENT AND STORAGE ACTIVITIES
RCRA Online Number:11881
Date:10/17/1994
To:Directors, Regions 1-10
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: Fuel blenders are subject to 268.7(b) LDR notification and certification. Fuel blending is not exempt from permitting, unless it is done at a generator site in a 262.34 accumulation unit. Fuel blending at a transfer facility is treatment and requires a permit. Most fuel blending units are permitted as tanks or miscellaneous units. Fuel blenders are subject to the air emissions standards (SEE ALSO: RPC# 12/5/94-01; 59 FR 62896; 12/6/94). Thermal treatment units are not eligible for the 262.34 permit exemption. Recycling units at facilities with other permitted units are subject to the air emissions standards (SEE ALSO: 62 FR 25997; 5/12/97). Generators who send waste off-site to a burner are subject to LDR notification. Cement or light-weight aggregate kiln produced by a Bevill device burning both hazardous waste and Bevill-exempt wastes may be exempt from land disposal restrictions (LDR) treatment standards when used in a manner constituting disposal if the residues pass the significantly affected test in 266.112. If neither the products nor the residues are subject to the LDR treatment standards, the original generator's waste is not prohibited from land disposal, and is subject only to 268.7(a)(6) (SEE ALSO: 62 FR 25997; 5/12/97).
