Chitin/Chitosan, Farnesol/Nerolidol and Nosema locustae Final Registration Review Decision; Notice of Availability, 79096-79097 [E8-30496]

Download as PDF 79096 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 248 / Wednesday, December 24, 2008 / Notices noted above, which assessed spent oil shale disposed of at Anvil Points for over thirty years, and discussed in the report, Final Draft Engineering/Cost Analysis for Waste Shale and Impoundments at U.S. Navy Oil Reserve 1 & 3 March 2005, indicates that spent oil shale samples did not exhibit the corrosivity characteristic when tested for the hazardous characteristic of corrosivity. Also, because oil shale undergoing above ground retorting is subject to high heat where destructive distillation occurs and results in most organics and hydrogen being removed, it is not likely from a chemical standpoint that spent oil shale could be corrosive. 4. Reactivity Based on the review of the literature noted above, the Agency has not found any information that identifies spent oil shale as potentially reactive. Review of the BLM Anvil Points studies do not indicate that spent oil shale disposed of in piles over long periods of time ever became reactive. Based on our review of the data noted above, it is not likely from a chemical standpoint that spent oil shale could be reactive. D. Conclusion The regulatory status of spent oil shale, from above ground retorting operations was determined as part of the 1989 final Bevill rulemaking. Spent oil shale from above ground oil shale operations is not Bevill-exempt. The Agency believes this NODA’s clear statement will have little practical effect, because it believes—based on the data described in this notice—that spent oil shale from above ground retorting operations are very unlikely to be hazardous under RCRA Subtitle C. EPA seeks additional data relevant to this conclusion and seeks comment on the data presented that supports our conclusion. Dated: December 17, 2008. Susan Parker Bodine, Assistant Administrator, Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response. [FR Doc.
