Title:DISTILLATION OR FRACTIONATION COLUMN BOTTOMS FROM THE PRODUCTION OF CHLOROBENZENE
RCRA Online Number:11342
Date:04/21/1988
To:Sinibaldi
From:Lowrance
Organization of Recipient:Standard Chlorine of Delaware, Inc.
Description: Persons may petition EPA to add new types of units to the industrial furnace definition. Distillation or fractionation column bottoms from the production of chlorobenzene (K085) are by-products. Discussion of by-product versus co-product. Bottoms that must be further processed before use are not co-products. EPA intends to designate all materials introduced into halogen acid furnaces (HAFs) as inherently waste-like. A chlorinated by-product reused as ingredient in chlorinated feedstocks and muriatic acid is not a solid waste (SW) if no burning, reclamation, disposal, or speculative accumulation is involved (SUPERSEDED: see 56 FR 7134; 2/21/91). A generator must be able to provide supporting documentation for exempt wastes. If a material is a SW depends on the disposition, or intended disposition, of the material. Discussion of the regulatory status of a gas-fired thermal oxidizer. Discussion of the status of an oxidation reactor burning chlorinated benzene process streams in titanium dioxide production depends on if material is burned for energy recovery or as ingredient in industrial product (SUPERSEDED: see Part 266, Subpart H). Burning waste in an incinerator is destruction subject to incinerator standards.
