The background document provides the Agency's technical support and rationale for selecting and developing the treatment standards for the constituents to be regulated in K021 waste. The document explains how EPA determines BDAT, selects constituents for regulation, and calculates treatment standards. Section 2 presents waste-specific information--the number and location of facilities affected by the land disposal restrictions, the waste-generating process, and waste characterization data. These data serve as a basis for determining whether a variance from treatment standards may be warranted for a particular type of K021 that is more difficult to treat than the wastes that were analyzed in developing the treatment standards for K021. Section 3 discusses the technologies used to treat the waste (or similar wastes), and Section 4 presents available performance data, including data on which the treatment standards are based. Section 5 explains EPA's determination of BDAT, while Section 6 discusses the selection of constituents to be regulated. The treatment standards are determined in Section 7.
