Identification and Listing of Hazardous Waste - CERCLA Hazardous Substance Designation - Reportable Quantity Adjustment - Coke By-Products Wastes - Federal Register Notice, August 18, 1992

EPA is amending its regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) by listing as hazardous seven wastes generated during the production, recovery, and refining of coke by-products produced from coal. EPA is adding seven wastes to the list of hazardous wastes from specific sources. EPA is also amending appendix VII of 40 CFR part 261 to add the constituents for which these wastes are being listed. In addition, the Agency is finalizing the proposed determination not to list as hazardous wastes wastewaters from coking and tar refining operations.
