6 CCR 1007-3-8.38 - Basis and Purpose

These amendments to 6 CCR 1007-3, Parts 261, 262, 264, 265, 268 and 100 are made pursuant to the authority granted to the Hazardous Waste Commission in § 25-15-302(2), C.R.S.

Organic Air Emission Standards for Tanks. Surface Impoundments, and Containers.

These amendments revise the final subparts AA, BB, CC rules in order to further clarify the regulatory text of the final standards, and to correct typographical and grammatical errors that exist in the current rules. These amendments correspond to and provide state equivalency with the EPA final rule federal regulations that were published in the Federal Register on December 8, 1997 (62 FR 64636-64671) and January 21, 1999 (64 FR 3382-3391).

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) originally promulgated RCRA standards designed to reduce organic air emission from hazardous waste management activities in 1994 (59 FR 69826, December 4, 1994). The organic air emission standards control air emissions from certain process vents and equipment leaks (Part 264 and Part 265, Subparts AA and BB), and emissions for certain tanks, containers, and surface impoundments (the Subpart CC standards). EPA has issued a number of effective date postponements and modifications to its original Subpart CC rulemaking of December 4, 1994. The adoption of these amendments to the state air emission standards are necessary to maintain equivalency to and consistency with the latest modifications to the federal RCRA organic air emission control standards.

This Basis and Purpose incorporates by reference the preamble language for the Environmental Protection Agency regulations published in the Federal Register at 62 FR 64636-64671, December 8, 1997, and at 64 FR 3382-3391, January 21, 1999.

Organobromine Production Wastes.

This rule adds a listing for 2,4,6-tribomophenol as a hazardous constituent in Appendix VIII of Part 261; promulgates the listing of floor sweeping, off-specification product and spent filter media from the production of 2,4,6-tribomophenol as hazardous waste K140 in § 261.32; and lists the 2,4,6-tribomophenol commercial chemical product in § 261.33(f) as hazardous waste U408 when discarded. This rule also sets land disposal restrictions prohibitions and treatment standards for these wastes in Part 268 of the regulations. The effect of listing these wastes will be to subject them to stringent management and treatment standards under RCRA, as well as to emergency notification requirement for releases of hazardous substances to the environment (CERCLA and EPCRA).

This Basis and Purpose incorporates by reference the preamble language for the Environmental Protection Agency regulations published in the Federal Register at 63 FR 24596-24628, May 4, 1998 and at 63 FR 35147-35150, June 29, 1998.
