The background document presents the Agency's rationale and technical support for developing regulatory standards for cadmium-containing wastes. Sections 2 through 6 present waste-specific information for the D006 wastes. Section 2 presents the number and location of facilities affected by the land disposal restrictions, the waste-generating process, and waste characterization data. Section 3 discusses the technologies used to treat the waste (or similar wastes), and Section 4 presents available performance data, including data on which treatment standards are based. Section 5 explains EPA's determination of BDAT. Proposed treatment standards for cadmium wastes are determined in Section 6.
