Title:ABILITY OF A HAZARDOUS WASTE BURNING BIF TO SPIKE METALS AND USE OF TEST DATA IN LIEU OF A TRIAL BURN
RCRA Online Number:14056
Date:04/01/1996
To:Gossman
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:Gossman Consulting
Description: EPA does not recommend spiking toxic metals at high concentrations during BIF trial burns. Burning waste fuels with high metals content in trial burns, compliance tests, or normal operations is an environmentally unsound practice. The Combustion Strategy recommends that toxic metals burned in hazardous waste combustors be addressed in a multi-pathway risk assessment under Section 3005(c)(3) omnibus authority. Decisions to allow the use of data in lieu of a trial burn or compliance test are made on a site-specific basis. Data-in-lieu of provisions are not intended to allow the elimination of retesting requirements.
