Title:MINERAL PROCESSING RESIDUALS FROM COMBUSTION UNITS BURNING HAZARDOUS WASTE FUEL
RCRA Online Number:12283
Date:08/15/1984
To:Simon, Region 2
From:Skinner
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: Heating shale to produce lightweight aggregate is beneficiation, and therefore, wastes from this process are excluded by the 261.4(b)(7) Bevill exemption for mining and mineral processing wastes. Use of hazardous waste fuels does not preclude the 261.4(b)(7) or 261.4(b)(8) (cement kiln dust (CKD)) exclusion. Burning for energy recovery is treatment. Wastes derived from recycled waste are still listed (SEE ALSO: 66 FR 27266; 5/16/01). The mixture-rule de minimis exemption at 261.3(a)(2)(iv) only applies if solvents are commingled with process wastewaters as part of routine housekeeping procedures. The exemption is not applicable to sludges mixed with wastewater or sludges that generate wastewaters.
