The EPA in the Friday, Sept. 24, 2010, Federal Register announced it is approving a delisting petition for a Texas company for three of its waste streams from a rotary kiln incinerator (RKI). The wastes are bottom ash, RKI fly ash and RKI scrubber blowdown.
Eastman Chemical Company-Texas Operations, Longview, Texas, convinced the agency that its two ash types were both derived from the management of several F-, K-, and U-waste codes. The blowdown produced by the RKI's air pollution control equipment was also derived from the management of several F-, K-, and U-waste codes as well as certain characteristic hazardous wastes. The RKI is authorized to manage a list of additional F-, K-, U-, and P-codes to cover off-site sources not attributed to the above waste codes. If these waste codes are not specifically listed in the delisting exclusion, they are not covered by the exclusion and can not be managed as non-hazardous, unless and until, the exclusion is modified to include them
The rule, which was passed as a direct final rule, goes into effect on Nov. 23, 2010.
