NR 661 Appendix VIII, which are present in the waste to be burned, except that the applicant need not analyze for constituents listed in ch. NR 661 Appendix VIII, which would reasonably not be expected to be found in the waste. Identify the constituents excluded from analysis and state the basis for the exclusion. The waste analysis shall rely on appropriate analytical techniques.
NR 670.062(2)(b)1.d. d. An approximate quantification of the hazardous constituents identified in the waste, within the precision produced by appropriate analytical methods.
