Title:REGULATORY STATUS OF CRUDE SULFATE TURPENTINE (CST) UNDER RCRA
RCRA Online Number:14609
Date:08/08/2002
To:Wasserstrom
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:American Forest & Paper Association (AFPA)
Description: Crude sulfate turpentine (CST) is not a solid waste when it is burned for energy recovery because it is a commercial chemical product (CCP) that is itself a fuel (SEE ALSO: 50 FR 14219; 4/11/85). EPA rejected using turpentine as a benchmark fuel in establishing comparable fuel specifications, since CST is not widely used as a fuel (SEE ALSO: 63 FR 33782, 33785; 6/14/99). CST contains hydrogen sulfide that can pose health risks, thus it should be managed in accordance with applicable OSHA standards.
