    Document DateDocument TitleDocument Type
    07/17/2015RCRA REGULATORY STATUS OF SPENT REFRACTORY BRICKMemo
    Description: In a particular process, treatment of spent, crushed hexavalent chrome bricks essentially regenerates the chromium back into trivalent chromium, and this treated material then becomes the feedstock to produce new trivalent chromium refractory bricks. Per 40 CFR 261.2(c)(4), regeneration of a secondary material is a form of reclamation, and the reclamation of particular types of secondary materials, such as spent materials, is subject to RCRA regulations. Furthermore, the RCRA regulations at 261.2(e) involving the direct use/reuse of a secondary material as an ingredient or as an effective substitute in a manufacturing process do not apply when the material is being reclaimed and therefore are not applicable in this situation.

Previously named ""Municipal Solid Waste Generation, Recycling, and Disposal in the United States: Facts and Figures,"" the report's new name emphasizes the importance of sustainable materials management (SMM). SMM refers to the use and reuse of materials in the most productive and sustainable way across their entire life cycle, in order to conserve resources, reduce waste, slow climate change, and minimize the environmental impacts of the use of materials.

    04/01/2015Waste Analysis at Facilities That Generate, Treat, Store, and Dispose of Hazardous Wastes - Final; A Guidance ManualPublication
    Description: The purpose of this guidance manual is to discuss how a person can perform waste analyses and develop waste analysis plans (WAPs) in accordance with the federal hazardous waste regulations of RCRA, codified at 40 CFR Parts 260 through 279. The primary audiences for this manual are hazardous waste generators and owner or operators of treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). This manual can also provide guidance in the development of used oil processor or re-refiner analysis plans under Part 279. In addition, the manual can be helpful to federal and state permit writers in evaluating WAPs and inspectors/enforcement personnel in determining whether a facility is in compliance with its WAP requirements.
