EPA/SWER RIN: 2050-AG24 Publication ID: Spring 2007 
Title: Expanding the Comparable Fuels Exclusion Under RCRA 
Abstract: EPA currently excludes specific industrial wastes, also known as comparable fuels, from most Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste management requirements when the wastes are used for energy production and do not contain hazardous constituent levels that exceed those found in a typical benchmark fuel that facilities would otherwise use. Using such wastes as fuel saves energy by reducing the amount of hazardous waste that would otherwise be treated and disposed; promotes energy production from a domestic, renewable source; and reduces use of fossil fuels. With an interest in supplementing the Nationís energy supplies and to ensure that energy sources are managed only to the degree necessary to protect human health and the environment, EPA, as part of the Resource Conservation Challenge, is examining the effectiveness of the current comparable fuel program and considering whether other industrial wastes could be safely used as fuel as well.
