This report was prepared in response to the requirements of Section 8002(n) of RCRA, which directs EPA to provide a detailed and comprehensive study on the sources and quantities of certain large-volume wastes generated primarily from the combustion of coal or other fossil fuels, potential human health and environmental impacts posed by the management of these wastes, alternatives to current practices, and costs of such alternatives. In keeping with its court-ordered schedule and pursuant to the requirements of Section 3001(b)(3)(A)(i) and Section 8002(n) of RCRA, the EPA has prepared this report on remaining FFC wastes. In addition to complying with the Congressional mandate, this report will serve to establish a factual basis for EPA decision-making regarding the appropriate regulatory status, under RCRA, of remaining FFC wastes. The report addresses the following eight study factors required by Section 8002(n) of RCRA for FFC wastes: the source and volumes of such materials generated per year; present disposal practices; potential danger, if any, to human health and the environment from the disposal of such materials; documented cases in which danger to human health or the environment has been proved; alternatives to current disposal methods; the costs of such alternatives; the impact of those alternatives on the use of natural resources; and the current and potential utilization of such materials. In addition, the report includes a review of applicable state and federal regulations so that regulatory decisions that derive from the report will avoid duplication of existing requirements.
