Title:MEMO ON FUEL/WATER MIXTURES
RCRA Online Number:14883
Date:11/01/2016
To:Wieties
From:Johnson
Organization of Recipient:Illini Environmental, Inc.
Description: A fuel/water mixture that exhibits the toxicity characteristic for benzene and that does not have recoverable fuel product prior to being bulked with other fuel mixtures would not be considered to be making a "useful contribution" as defined in 40 CFR 260.43(a)(1) and would not be considered a commercial chemical product being legitimately recycled. Commercial chemical products are not solid waste when used to make a fuel if they themselves are fuels (40 CFR 261.2(c)(2)(ii)). A mixture of fuel and water going to reclamation is considered a commercial chemical product being reclaimed. Reclamation must meet the definition of legitimate recycling found at 40 CFR 260.43, including the first factor which says the materials must provide a "useful contribution." In the case of fuel/water mixtures, such mixtures would be considered as providing a useful contribution if the fuel product is recovered by the recycling process. Determinations of "useful contribution" must be made before the material is mixed with another material.
