This report completes a three-part EPA program to assess barrel and drum reconditioning processes. The intent of the report is to provide recommendations for upgrading and optimizing drum reconditioning processes to enable facilities to meet rigorous environmental standards. Data are summarized for a sampling and analysis test program conducted at three drum reconditioning plants. Collected data are compared with typical pollutant concentrations reported for the industry. Sampling and analysis results are used to assess the potential environmental impact of reconditioning operations in terms of current regulations for air, water, and solid waste pollution control. Pollution control needs of the industry are evaluated, and methods for upgrading and optimizing current industry practice are recommended. These recommendations specifically relate to identified pollutant pathways. In addition, research needs are identified for pollution control processes and procedures requiring additional effort before they can be used with confidence.
