RCRA Online Number:11684
Date:08/11/1992
To:Guinyard, Region 4
From:Denit
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: Generally, when listed hazardous waste is burned in a cement kiln for a purpose other than just energy recovery and the resulting product is placed on the land, the cement product is a solid and hazardous waste subject to 266.20. However, cement produced from burning off-gases in a cement kiln is not a waste-derived product. Cement produced from treated soil that no longer contains hazardous waste is not a waste-derived product. For the purposes of 266.20(b), EPA may test clinker, rather than product (i.e., cement). 268.7(b)(5), (b)(7) paperwork applies to each shipment of waste-derived product sent to a receiving facility. Discusses the guidelines for determining the regulatory status of two or more hazardous waste treatment units in a series. A cement kiln and resource recovery kiln operating in series are regulated as BIFs. Off-gases from resource recovery kilns are regulated under RCRA Subtitle C if they originate from hazardous waste treatment (SEE ALSO: RPC# 7/29/94-01).
