Title:BURNING OF PHENOL BOTTOMS (K022) IN COMBUSTION UNITS
RCRA Online Number:14746
Date:07/13/2005
To:Macdonald
From:Hale
Organization of Recipient:JL.M Chemicals, Inc.
Description: Boilers and kilns without an effective RCRA permit are prohibited from accepting hazardous waste. Although K022 has high heating value, due to its hazardous nature, it must only be burned in a combustion device that is permitted to burn hazardous waste. In certain situations, the waste may meet the criteria of a “comparable fuel” under 40 CFR 261.38. Hazardous waste may be burned on site in a RCRA permitted unit. The proposed national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for hazardous waste combustors (Phase I Final Replacement Standards and Phase II Standards) would replace many RCRA combustion technical standards applicable to a boiler that burns hazardous waste.
