Title:REGULATORY DETERMINATION ON PURGE MONOMER GENERATED FROM POLYSTYRENE MANUFACTURING
RCRA Online Number:14589
Date:02/19/2002
To:Jones
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:Ohio EPA
Description: NOVA’s purged monomer is a co-product, not a by-product, and is not subject to RCRA Subtitle C when burned on-site for energy recovery. In co-product determination, EPA evaluated whether the purge monomer was intentionally produced, produced to market specifications, and sold to the general public “as is” without substantial processing (SEE ALSO: 1/31/1995 Memo, Shapiro to Gelber). The purge monomer has value as a feedstock for lesser grade polystyrene and as a fuel and there is a history of marketing the material for an intended use. When the purge monomer is used as a fuel, it displays the same characteristics as other fuel sources, such as natural gas.
