Title:USED OIL-FIRED SPACE HEATERS AS UTILITY BOILERS
RCRA Online Number:14280
Date:08/20/1998
To:Bosco
From:Bussard
Organization of Recipient:Patton Boggs, LLP
Description: Off-specification used oil can be burned in on-site space heaters as long as the heater has a maximum capacity of not more than 0.5 million BTU per hour. The definition of utility boiler is intended to apply to large boilers that have emission controls similar to industrial boilers and furnaces. Small on-site used oil space heaters exceeding the 0.5 million BTU per hour limit are not considered utility boilers even if the energy created is being sold. A space heater not meeting the provisions of the exemption is a nonindustrial boiler which is prohibited from burning used oil.
