hw transporters
HW Transporters
  • A hazardous waste transporter under Subtitle C is any person engaged in the off-site transportation of hazardous waste within the United States, if such transportation requires a manifest.
  • Regulated by EPA and DOT
transporter requirements
Transporter Requirements
  • Obtain an EPA ID number
  • Comply with the manifest system
  • Properly handle hazardous waste discharges
storage facility
Storage Facility
  • Holding hazardous waste for a temporary period, after which the hazardous waste is treated, disposed of, or stored elsewhere
treatment facility
Treatment Facility
  • Any method, technique, or process designed to physically, chemically, or biologically change the nature of a hazardous waste
disposal facility
Disposal Facility
  • The discharge, deposit, injection, dumping, spilling, leaking, or placing of any solid or hazardous waste on or in the land or water. A disposal facility is any site where hazardous waste is intentionally placed and where the waste will remain after a TSDF stops operation.
regulatory requirements of tsd facilities
Regulatory Requirements of TSD Facilities
  • Meet general facility standards
  • Preparedness and prevention requirements
  • Contingency plans and emergency procedure provisions
  • Manifest, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements.
  • Closure and postclosure (financial assurance)
  • Groundwater monitoring
land disposal requirements
Land Disposal Requirements
  • Prohibits the land disposal of hazardous waste that has not been adequately treated to reduce the threat posed to human health and the environment
  • Prohibits dilution of hazardous waste to circumvent proper treatment
  • Prohibits indefinite storage of untreated hazardous waste other than the accumulation of quantities necessary for effective treatment or disposal
  • Best Demonstrated Available Technology (BDAT)
    • Treatment standards, or
    • Technology
universal treatment standards
Universal Treatment Standards
  • A universal treatment standard is a single concentration limit established for a specific constituent regardless of the waste matrix in which it is present,
  • i.e., the same treatment standard applies to a particular constituent in each waste code in which it is regulated
  • Two different sets of universal treatment standards
    • for nonwastewater forms of waste
    • FOR wastewater forms of waste.
example bdat for wood preserving wastes
Example: BDAT for Wood Preserving Wastes
  • Universal treatment standards for the regulation of listed hazardous wastes identified as F032, F034, and F035.UTS
  • Treatment standard alternative of combustion for the regulation of Dioxin and Furan (D/F) constituents in F032
  • Based on slag vitrification and stabilization/solidification treatment performance data for nonwastewaters
  • Based on (1) pretreatment steps such as oil separation, pH adjustment, chemical precipitation/clarification, and equalization (2) biological treatment processes with acclimation of microorganisms to the concentrations of pentachlorophenol, PCDD, PCDF, and metals; or (3) the addition of a carbon adsorption polishing

  • Tanks
  • Waste Piles
  • Miscellaneous Units (salt domes formations, underground mines, and underground caves)
