The document is an addendum to the supporting BDAT background document for K015 dated August 1988. Most of the information regarding untreated K015 waste and K015 wastewater standards is available in the original background document and its references. The addendum reflects only revisions pertaining to K015 nonwastewater standards development. According to 40 CFR 261.32, waste code K015 is generated by the organic chemicals industry and is listed as 'still bottoms from the distillation of benzyl chloride.' Because of the high organic concentrations in K015 (88% benzal chloride), the Agency has determined that the BDAT for K015 waste is incineration. After promulgation of the final First Third rule, EPA learned from a K015 generator that incineration of K015 generates an ash residue. Additionally, treatment of wastewater residuals such as incineration scrubber water and landfill leachate might form nonwastewater residuals. Therefore, EPA is revising the no land disposal standard by developing numerical standards for K015 nonwastewaters to reflect these new issues.
