Hazardous Waste Management System: Identification and Listing of Hazardous Waste - Burning of Hazardous Waste in Boilers and Industrial Furnaces - Federal Register Notice, September 5, 1991

EPA is announcing an administrative stay of the permitting standards for boilers and industrial furnaces adopted pursuant to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (56 FR 7206, Feb. 21, 1991) as they apply to coke ovens burning certain hazardous wastes from the coke by-products recovery process.

The primary effect of the stay is to halt the application of industrial furnace standards to coke ovens when they reprocess these hazardous wastes while the Agency can evaluate comments on a pending regulatory proposal to exclude such wastes from subtitle C jurisdiction when recycled by reprocessing in coke ovens. Section 266.100(a) is amended by adding a note to reflect this administrative stay.
