This report estimates the releases from and costs of the truck transport of hazardous waste. The report contains these estimates for bulk and container shipments. This study is a component of a larger analysis of hazardous waste management, EPA's 'RCRA Risk-Cost Analysis Model'. Transport releases are presented as the sum of the expected fraction released enroute and the expected fraction released at terminal points. To make estimates, existing studies were reviewed and state and national data on accident rates, quantities released in accidents, distance of shipments, numbers of shipments, quantities shipped, and component costs were evaluated.
