Subject: Land Disposal Restrictions: Notice of Intent to Grant a Site-Specific Determination of Equivalent Treatment to Pioneer Chlor-Alkali, Inc.; Determination of Treatment
Abstract: The United States Environmental Protection Agency is announcing our intent to grant the petition of Pioneer Chlor-Alkali, Inc. in St. Gabriel, Louisiana for a site-specific determination of equivalent treatment (DET). This DET would address Pioneers Remerc process for treating K106 mercury wastes under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

Subject: Hazardous Waste Management System; Identification and Listing of Hazardous Waste; Chlorinated Aliphatics Production Wastes; Land Disposal Restrictions for Newly Identified Wastes; CERCLA Hazardous Substance Designation and Reportable Quantities; Proposed Rule
Abstract: The EPA is proposing to list three of six wastes from the chlorinated aliphatics industry as hazardous wastes under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), which directs EPA to determine whether certain wastes from the chlorinated aliphatics industry present a hazard to human health or the environment. The effect of listing these three wastes will be to subject them to stringent management and treatment standards under RCRA and to subject them to emergency notification requirements for releases of hazardous substances to the environment. EPA is proposing a contingent management listing approach for one of these wastes, and as one of two options for another of these wastes, such that waste generators will have the option of their waste not being listed if it is sent to a specific type of management facility.

Subject: Office of Solid Waste (name changed to Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery on January 18, 2009) Burden Reduction Project; Notice of Data Availability and Request for Comment
Abstract: To meet the goals of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, EPA planned to reduce the recordkeeping and reporting burden on states, the public and regulated community associated with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The Paperwork Reduction Act establishes a federal government wide goal to reduce the recordkeeping and reporting burden on the states, the public and regulated community by 40% from a starting date of 1995 to September 2001. We are working to reduce burden while protecting human health and the environment. For this Notice of Data Availability (NODA), we reviewed our recordkeeping and reporting requirements and their burden on the states, public, and regulated community; reviewed burden reduction ideas developed by other EPA offices and the regulated community; developed additional burden reduction ideas; and sought input from EPA offices and states. In today's NODA, we are soliciting comment on our ideas and our background documents. These background documents are available on the Internet and in the RCRA Information Center. We plan to issue a proposed rulemaking to implement many of these ideas.

Subject: Identification and Listing of Dye and Pigment Wastes; Proposed Rulemaking
Abstract: This notice proposes to list two of three wastes from the dyes and pigment industries as hazardous wastes under RCRA. These wastes, if finalized, will be subject to LDR treatment standards, among other RCRA requirements. The proposed LDR treatment standards are proposed in this notice.

Subject: LDR, Site Specific Treatment Variance to Chemical Waste Management, Inc.; Final Rule
Abstract: The Agency granted a site-specific treatment variance from the LDR treatment standards for two selenium-bearing hazardous wastes. The variance was granted because the chemical properties of the selenium wastes differ significantly from the waste used to establish the current LDR standard for selenium.

Subject: LDR, Phase IV, Wood Preserving Wastes, Treatment Standards for Metal Wastes and Micronutrient Fertilizers, Carbamate Treatment Standards, K088 Treatment Standards (PDF) (10 pp, 202K, About PDF); Final Rule Technical Correction
Abstract: This technical correction corrects and clarifies five Phase IV-related rules the EPA published on May 12, 1997; May 26, 1998; August 31,1998; September 4, 1998; and September 24, 1998. Included are clarifications to the effective date of Phase IV; the status of cement kiln dust; D004 treatment standards; the policy against intentional mixing of hazardous waste with soil or debris; treatment residuals and the LDR point of generation; and other topics.
