EPA Adds to List of Categorical Non-waste Fuels
The new entries to the list of categorical non-waste fuels are:
- Construction and demolition wood processed from construction and demolition debris according to best management practices;
- Paper recycling residuals generated from the recycling of recovered paper, paperboard, and corrugated containers and combusted by paper recycling mills whose boilers are designed to burn solid fuel; and
- Creosote-treated railroad ties that are processed and then combusted in certain units.
Making a solid waste determination is a critical step to managing hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act—to be a hazardous waste, a material must first be a solid waste. When RCRA solid wastes are burned in a combustion unit, the unit must meet Clean Air Act Section 129 emissions standards. When a material that is not a solid waste is burned in combustion unit, the unit must meet Clean Air Act Section 112 emissions standards.
By categorically identifying these three materials as “not solid waste” by adding them to the list at 40 CFR 241.4(a), EPA will save generators from having to make solid waste determinations for these added materials in order to identify the Clean Air Act standards that apply.
The new hazardous waste rule is effective March 9, 2016.

My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
Lion courses are the standard to which all other workshops should strive for!
