RCRA Online Number:12021
Date:01/13/1981
To:Elmer
From:Dietrich
Organization of Recipient:Utility Solid Waste
Description: Fossil fuels include coal, oil, and natural gas. “Primarily” means fossil fuels constitute 50% of the fuel. Wastes from the burning of coal and hazardous waste are excluded under the Bevill exemption for fossil fuel combustion (FFC) wastes if coal is >50% of the fuel. Boiler cleaning solutions, boiler blowdown, demineralizer regenerant, pyrites, and cooling tower blowdown are exempt if they are co-disposed or co-treated (SUPERSEDED: See 65 FR 32213, 32219; 5/22/2000). Activities that are not directly associated with FFC are not excluded (e.g., plant maintenance or construction). Combustion wastes that are specifically listed are not excluded. Boiler blowdown, boiler cleaning solutions, demineralizer regenerant, pyrites, cooling tower blowdown (hereinafter “other wastes”) disposed of or treated separately from FFC wastes or mixed with only small amounts of FFC waste are not exempt (SEE ALSO: 56 FR 7134; 2/21/91, 58 FR 42468; 8/9/93).
