EPA ISSUES PERMIT MODIFICATION TO THERMAL OXIDATION CORPORATION
 IN ROEBUCK, S.C.
 ATLANTA, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Environmental Protection Agency announced today that it has issued a Class III Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) permit modification to Laidlaw Environmental Services' Thermal Oxidation Corporation (TOC) in Roebuck, S.C.
 TOC requested the permit modification to allow the existing liquid incinerator to incinerate specific hazardous wastes with metal concentrations higher than those that were provided for in the original permit that was issued Sept. 30, 1988. After consideration of public comments and technical review, the agency prepared a revised permit modification.
 The permit is modified to incorporate new, revised and requested conditions, which (1) increase metal feedrates for the incineration of hazardous waste without increased metals emissions, as demonstrated by a metals trial burn; (2) increase regulatory controls for more effective enforcement; (3) require Thermal Relief Vent (TRV) controls to limit the number of vent openings in accordance with the agency's latest guidance; and (4) regulate direct waste transfer operations between tank trucks and the incinerator.
 Modifications to the permit establish requirements that are more restrictive in the operation and regulation of the facility's higher metal feedrates. The agency considers these modifications necessary to ensure protection to human health and the environment and for the expeditious determination of compliance.
 TOC owns and operates a hazardous waste management facility in Roebuck, Spartanburg County, S.C. The facility consists of a liquid injection incinerator, bulk liquid storage, container storage, and a small-scale wastewater treatment plant. These processes provide treatment operations to serve as alternatives for landfilling hazardous waste.
