Assessment Topic

Standards for the control of organic air emissions from hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDF) and waste solvent treatment facilities (WSTF) are promulgated under the authority of Section 3004(n) of the 1976 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). These standards would apply to certain process vents associated with distillation and stripping equipment at WSTF (and at TSDF, if applicable) and to fugitive emissions from equipment leaks at TSDF where the waste stream (or its derivatives) contain 10 percent or more total organics. This document contains summaries of public comments received on the proposed rule (February 5, 1987), EPA responses, and a discussion of differences between the proposed and final standards.
Also see A.90.20 for more information on control technologies and costs.
