Title:INDUSTRIAL FURNACES BURNING HAZARDOUS WASTES AND THE RESIDUALS GENERATED (LOUISIANA REG)
RCRA Online Number:12907
Date:04/15/1987
To:Fortuna
From:Porter
Organization of Recipient:Hazardous Waste Treatement Council
Description: The use constituting disposal regulations do not require that wastes be chemically bound or fixed; rather, regulations require that wastes have undergone chemical reaction so as to become inseparable by physical means. The Agency has no guidance as to the level of chemical reaction that must have occurred, but the waste must be chemically transformed and be an effective substitute for a commercial material. Residues from a kiln may be transformed. The Bevill exemption for mining and mineral processing wastes applies to waste, not to kilns which are not processing ores or minerals. The definition of solid waste rule (50 FR 614; 1/4/85) was promulgated pursuant to non-HSWA authority. Non-HSWA rules are not effective in base authorized states until the state revises its program. Louisiana is not authorized for the rule (SUPERSEDED: See 54 FR 48889; 11/28/89). The hazardous waste-derived fuel rule is a HSWA provision and is effective in all states, including Louisiana (SUPERSEDED: See 266.100).
