Title:REQUEST FOR ADMINISTRATIVE STAY OF TREATABILITY VARIANCE FOR HAZARDOUS WASTES GENERATED FROM CITGO PETROLEUM'S LAKE CHARLES REFINERY
RCRA Online Number:14213
Date:03/11/1997
To:Lennett
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:Louisiana Environmental Action Network
Description: A treatability variance at CITGO Petroleum is warranted. The lack of a variance would result in no closure by waste removal and no treatment at all of hazardous waste, a net environmental detriment (SEE ALSO: 61 FR 55718; 10/28/96). The variance requires removal and destruction of benzene to the same level as the existing treatment standard, and greater than 90% removal and destruction of most of the remaining constituents in the waste (SUPERSEDED: CITGO variance withdrawn at 62 FR 64504; 12/5/97). Section 268.44(a) does not require a finding that the waste’s chemical or physical properties differ significantly from the waste tested to develop the treatment standard in order for the standard to be deemed inappropriate.
