Hazardous Waste Identification Rule (HWIR): Industry Case Studies.
This report presents the findings of industry case study site visits and interviews conducted in 1997-98. EPA had two objectives in conducting in-depth industry case studies of hazardous waste generating facilities: (1) to provide insights about the validity of the assumptions, decision rules, analytical logic, and results (i.e., cost savings estimates) of the 1995 HWIR Process Waste Economic Model and (2) to provide insights about more qualitative, "real world" impacts of the proposed HWIR rule on individual hazardous waste generators and industries.
