Assessment Of Impacts Of Land Disposal Restrictions On Ocean Dumping And Ocean Incineration Of Solvents, Dioxins, And California List Wastes, Draft. (See OSWER Docket Copy #F-86-LDR4-S0009).
This report analyzes potential impacts of the land disposal restrictions program on ocean regulations of the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act (MPRSA) from two perspectives:
Chapters 2 and 3 analyze the shift in demand for ocean disposal resulting from the restrictions on land disposal of solvents, dioxins, and California list wastes. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 focus on the comparative risk assessment task.
Chapter 2 describes a methodology to score and rank waste streams for relative acceptability for ocean disposal (i.e., ocean dumping or ocean-based incineration), and the results of applying this methodology to the set of solvents, dioxins, and California list wastes potentially affected by the land disposal restrictions. The scoring/ranking methodology is based on technical and legal requirements associated with ocean disposal of hazardous waste, and does not take into account cost factors or capacity constraints.
Chapter 3 supplements the scoring/ranking results of Chapter 2 with an analysis of cost factors and capacity constraints to estimate the potential shift in demand for ocean disposal (ocean dumping or ocean-based incineration) resulting from the restrictions on land disposal of solvents, dioxins, and California list wastes.
Chapters 4 and 5 describe the land disposal risk assessment model and the ocean disposal risk assessment model, respectively.
Chapter 6 presents preliminary results comparing land disposal risks and ocean disposal risks for selected waste streams.
- shift in demand for ocean disposal (ocean dumping or ocean-based incineration) resulting from the restrictions on land disposal of certain hazardous wastes; and
- comparison of ocean disposal risks and land disposal risks for selected waste streams.
