The report provides guidance to US EPA regions and state government on how to best implement Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and other US EPA regulations to facilitate permitting decisions for hazardous waste combustion facilities. It addresses facility characterization, including compiling basic facility data, identifying emission sources and compounds of concern (COPC), estimating COPC concentrations for non-detects, and concentrations detected in blanks. It discusses air dispersion and deposition modeling, problem formulation, analysis (exposure assessment and assessment of toxicity), and risk characterization. It includes references, tables and figures.
