Technical Background Document for the Report to Congress on Remaining Wastes from Fossil Fuel Combustion :

By: Environmental Protection Agency

Excerpt: This document presents the data used to characterize fossil fuel combustion (FFC) wastes for the Report to Congress on Remaining Wastes from Fossil Fuel Combustion. The purpose of this document is to compile the data used for this purpose into one report. The Report to Congress itself further summarizes the data and discusses its ramifications. This document is composed of two major sections: chemical characteristics (Section 2) and leachate characteristics (Section 3). The chemical characteristics section focuses on the total concentration of primary constituents of concern (e.g., metals) in FFC wastes. The leachate characteristics section focuses on the results of leaching analyses on FFC wastes. The primary analyses included are the toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP) and extraction procedure (EP) analysis, because these were the analyses used to characterize FFC waste leachate for use in the risk assessment portion of the Report to Congress. In a few cases, other analyses that are believed to be relevant to the characterization of FFC waste leachate (e.g., porewater data from surface impoundments managing ...

Technical Background Document Compliance Cost Estimates for the Proposed Land Management Regulation of Cement Kiln Dust

By: Environmental Protection Agency

Excerpt: Net, wasted, and beneficially used CKD quantities were reported by most plants. Net CKD is the total of wasted and beneficially used CKD. Baseline and compliance costs are based on reported or estimated wasted CKD quantities. Wasted CKD quantities were reported in the 1995 APCA Survey by 101 of the 110 plants affected by the proposed land management standards.3 Wasted CKD quantities were reported by an additional 7 plants in the 1991 APCA Survey.4 These 1991 quantities were assumed to be representative of 1995 quantities. Wasted CKD quantity data were not available for two plants. The net CKD quantities were estimated for these two plants based on average net CKD to clinker production ratios for reporting plants. Average net CKD generation ratios vary depending on kiln type. Table 2-1 presents the average net CKD generation ratios. Wasted CKD quantities for the two non-reporting plants were conservatively assumed to be equal to the net CKD estimates (e.g., no beneficial use of CKD was assumed). Table 2-2 summarizes the reported and estimated net, beneficially used, and wasted CKD quantities. Plant-specific wasted CKD quanti...
