NR 666.100(4)(b)1. 1. The hazardous waste has a total concentration of organic compounds listed in ch. NR 661 Appendix VIII, exceeding 500 ppm by weight, as-fired, and so is considered to be burned for destruction. The concentration of organic compounds in a waste as-generated may be reduced to the 500 ppm limit by bona fide treatment that removes or destroys organic constituents. Blending for dilution to meet the 500 ppm limit is prohibited and documentation that the waste has not been impermissibly diluted shall be retained in the records required by par.(a)3.
NR 666.100(4)(b)2. 2. The hazardous waste has a heating value of 5,000 Btu/lb or more, as-fired, and so is considered to be burned as fuel. The heating value of a waste as-generated may be reduced to below the 5,000 Btu/lb limit by bona fide treatment that removes or destroys organic constituents. Blending for dilution to meet the 5,000 Btu/lb limit is prohibited and documentation that the waste has not been impermissibly diluted shall be retained in the records required by par. (a) 3.
NR 666.100(4)(c) (c) To be exempt from ss.
