EPA reviewed the 36 industrial sectors (commodities) and 97 different general categories of wastes identified in a previously published Advanced Notice of Public Rule Making. EPA also reviewed a listing of more than 100 mineral commodities prepared by the U.S. Bureau of Mines, This information, in addition to data collected in previous EPA studies, was used to compile a comprehensive list of mineral commodity sectors. In the process, the Agency identified a total of 62 mineral commodities that could generate mineral processing waste streams that could potentially exhibit one of the characteristics of an RCRA hazardous site.
