HAZARDOUS WASTE INCINERATION REGULATIONS TO BE DISCUSSED AT MEETING

HAZARDOUS WASTE INCINERATION REGULATIONS TO BE DISCUSSED AT MEETING
 PITTSBURGH, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Until February 1991, there were no laws regulating air emissions from burning hazardous wastes as fuel for boilers and industrial furnaces.
 Now operators of these facilities will have to comply with new regulations recently finalized under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act as amended, and the deadline for compliance is Aug. 21 of this year.
 Hazardous wastes can be used as fuel for industrial boilers, furnaces and incinerators. Often the facility is paid to burn these wastes by the waste generators. The furnaces and boilers are usually part of a larger process for making cement, chemicals and other products.
 To help those who burn hazardous waste as fuel in incinerators, boilers and industrial furnaces meet the new regulations, the Air & Waste Management Association is sponsoring a specialty conference entitled "New RCRA Regulations for Industrial Boilers, Furnaces and Incinerators -- Permitting, Operating Experiences and Environmental Impacts," on March 16-19, at the Omni International Hotel in Orlando, Fla.
 Key regulatory people will provide retrospective and prospective views of the regulatory issues, compliance and permitting processes. Particular emphasis will be made on the boiler and industrial furnace regulations. Attendees will learn about new compliance and testing approaches, as well as hydrocarbon emissions, fate of metals and risk communication. The program will be punctuated with discussions of recent case studies in thermal treatment projects.
 The conference is intended for regulatory personnel as well as consultants and operators who run these facilities and who must comply with these regulations. There will also be sessions that will be of interest to those who are involved in community relations and business planning activities.
 An exhibition of relevant instrumentation and consultant services will complement the conference.
 The Air & Waste Management Association is a nonprofit technical and educational organization with nearly 14,000 members in 57 countries. Founded in 1907, the association provides a neutral forum where all sides of an environmental issue receive equal consideration.
