Title:CHARACTERIZATION OF USED TOLUENE WHEN SOLD AS A FUEL ADDITIVE OR FOR OTHER FUEL PURPOSES
RCRA Online Number:14814
Date:08/23/2010
To:Johnson
From:Rudzinski
Organization of Recipient:Arnold & Porter LLP
Description: Used toluene is a spent material and not a commercial chemical product (CCP), therefore the solid waste exemption for fuels burned for energy recovery does not apply. "Commercial chemical product" refers to a chemical substance which is manufactured or formulated for commercial or manufacturing use. This consists of the commercially pure grade of the chemical, any technical grades of the chemical that are produced or marketed, and all formulations in which the chemical is the sole active ingredient. It does not refer to a material such as a manufacturing process waste. Used toluene is a spent material because it has been used and as a result of contamination, can no longer serve the purpose for which it was produced without processing. Additionally, "contamination" as used in the definition of spent material, is any impurity, factor, or circumstance which causes the material to be taken out of service. Finally, the definition of spent material has been consistently applied to materials that have been used and are no longer fit for use without being regenerated.
