HAZARDOUS WASTE COMBUSTION UNIT PERMITTING MANUAL

This document has been developed to provide the permit writer or permit application reviewer the information required to efficiently conduct a complete review of the trial burn plan and the associated quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) plan, RCRA Part B permit application, and trial burn test report; as well as how to conduct trial burn test oversight and laboratory audits, and how to develop permit limits.

This document is organized into seven components. Each component contains a Table of Contents and a bibliography listing all guidance documents or other resource materials that are considered helpful references to the topics covered in that specific component. Within some sections of each component, guidance document and resource material titles are listed under the "Guidance" section. These titles are listed because specific page or section numbers are available as quick reference for use with the particular topic covered in the component.

The page numbering scheme for the main text of each component is "Component Number - Page Number." Each component is sequentially numbered from page 1 of Section 1.0 to the end of that component. Each component includes as few as 1 to as many as 25 attachments. These attachments are labeled with letters, such as Attachment A, Attachment B, and so on. To minimize confusion as to which attachments belong to which components, the page numbering scheme for the attachments is as follows: "Component Number - Attachment Letter - Page Number." As an example, the first page of Attachment A for Component 7 would be numbered "7-A-1."
