Title:DESIGNATION OF AMERICIUM BERYLLIUM SOURCES UNDER RCRA
RCRA Online Number:13545
Date:06/16/1992
To:Scott
From:Lowrance
Organization of Recipient:EG & G Idaho, Inc.
Description: Discusses the tentative determination that americium beryllium (AmBe) sealed source wastes are not RCRA hazardous wastes. AmBe sealed sources are not P015, and are not ignitable (D001), corrosive (D002), or reactive (D003). EPA does not expect stainless steel casings to fail the toxicity characteristic. Beryllium residues discarded during sealed source manufacturing process may be P015. Solder from sealed sources may be evaluated using a combination of testing and mass balance approaches. The theoretical TCLP concentration can be based on solder composition or by testing.
