EPA/SWER RIN: 2050-AE81 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Standards for the Management of Coal Combustion Residuals Generated by Commercial Electric Power Producers 
Abstract: This action is for the development of regulations for coal combustion residuals (also referred to as coal combustion waste). The regulations will apply to the management of coal combustion residuals that are generated by steam electric power generators, i.e., electric utilities and independent power producers, and are disposed of in landfills and surface impoundments. The intended benefits of this action will be to prevent contamination or damage to groundwaters and surface waters, thereby avoiding risk to human health and the environment, including ecological risks. The Agency issued on August 29, 2007, a Notice of Data Availability announcing the availability for public inspection and comment new information and data on the management of coal combustion residuals. The Agency considered these comments in developing the proposed rule regarding the regulation of coal combustion residuals under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA issued a proposed rule on June 21, 2010, in which the Agency co-proposed two approaches--one which would regulate coal combustion residuals under Subtitle C of RCRA as a "special waste" and one under subtitle D of RCRA as a nonhazardous waste. Under both approaches, coal combustion residuals that are beneficially used would remain Bevill exempt.
