374-2.6 Standards for processors and re-refiners.
(a) Applicability.
(1) The requirements of this section apply to owners and operators of facilities that process or re-refine used oil. Processing means chemical or physical operations designed to produce from used oil, or to make used oil more amenable for production of, fuel oils, lubricants, or other used oil-derived products. Processing includes, but is not limited to: blending used oil with virgin petroleum products, blending used oils to meet the fuel specification, filtration, simple distillation, chemical or physical separation and re-refining. The requirements of this section do not apply to:
(i) transporters that conduct incidental processing operations that occur during the normal course of used oil transportation as provided in section 374-2.5(b) of this Subpart; or
(ii) burners that conduct incidental processing operations that occur during the normal course of used oil management prior to burning as provided in section 374-2.7(b)(2) of this Subpart.
(2) Other applicable provisions. No person shall construct or operate a used oil processing or re-refining facility unless a permit has been obtained in accordance with section 374-2.10(c) of this Subpart. Used oil processors/re-refiners who conduct the following activities are also subject to the requirements of other applicable provisions of this Subpart as indicated in subparagraphs (i) through (v) of this paragraph.
(i) Processors/re-refiners who generate used oil must also comply with section 374-2.3 of this Subpart.
(ii) Processors/re-refiners who transport used oil must also comply with section 374-2.5 of this Subpart.
(iii) Except as provided in clauses (a) and (b) of this subparagraph, processors/re-refiners who burn off-specification used oil for energy recovery must also comply with section 374-2.7 of this Subpart. Processors/re-refiners burning used oil for energy recovery under the following conditions are not subject to section 374-2.7 of this Subpart:
(a) used oil that is generated by the processor/re-refiner may be burned in an on-site space heater, provided that the requirements of section 374-2.3(d) of this Subpart are met; or
(b) the used oil is burned for purposes of processing used oil, which is considered burning incidentally to used oil processing;
(iv) Processors/re-refiners who direct shipments of off-specification used oil from their facility to a used oil burner or who first claim that used oil that is to be burned for energy recovery meets the used oil fuel specifications set forth in section 374-2.2(b)(1) of this Subpart must also comply with section 374-2.8 of this Subpart; and
(v) Processors/re-refiners who dispose of used oil also must comply with section 374-2.9 of this Subpart.
(b) Notification
(1) Identification numbers. Used oil processors and re-refiners who have not previously complied with the notification requirements of RCRA 3010 must comply with these requirements and obtain an EPA identification number.
(2) Mechanics of notification. Used oil processors or re-refiners who have not received an EPA identification number may obtain one by notifying the EPA regional administrator of their used oil activity by submitting either:
(i) a completed EPA Form 8700-12 (EPA Form 8700-12 is available at the EPA website, http://www.epa.gov); or
(ii) a letter requesting an EPA identification number. Call RCRA/Superfund Hotline to determine where to send a letter requesting an EPA identification number. The letter must include the following information:
(a) processor or re-refiner company name;
(b) owner of the processor or re-refiner company;
(c) mailing address for the processor or re-refiner;
(d) name and telephone number for the processor or re-refiner point of contact;
(e) type of used oil activity (i.e., process only, process and re-refine); and
(f) location of the processor or re-refiner facility.
(c) General facility standards.
(1) Preparedness and prevention. Owners and operators of used oil collection centers, transfer, processing and re-refining facilities must comply with the following requirements:
(i) Maintenance and operation of facility. Facilities must be maintained and operated to minimize the possibility of a fire, explosion, or any unplanned sudden or non-sudden release of used oil to air, soil, or surface water which could threaten human health or the environment.
(ii) Required equipment. All facilities must be equipped with the following, unless none of the hazards posed by used oil handled at the facility could require a particular kind of equipment specified in clauses (a) through (d) of this subparagraph:
(a) an internal communications or alarm system capable of providing immediate emergency instruction (voice or signal) to facility personnel;
(b) a device, such as a telephone (immediately available at the scene of operations) or a hand-held two-way radio, capable of summoning emergency assistance from local police departments, fire departments, or State or local emergency response teams;
(c) portable fire extinguishers, fire control equipment (including special extinguishing equipment, such as that using foam, inert gas, or dry chemicals), spill control equipment, and decontamination equipment; and
(d) water at adequate volume and pressure to supply water hose streams, or foam-producing equipment, or automatic sprinklers, or water spray systems.
(iii) Testing and maintenance of equipment. All facility communications or alarm systems, fire protection equipment, spill control equipment, and decontamination equipment, where required, must be tested and maintained as necessary to assure its proper operation in time of emergency.
(iv) Access to communications or alarm system.
(a) Whenever used oil is being poured, mixed, spread, or otherwise handled, all personnel involved in the operation must have immediate access to an internal alarm or emergency communication device, either directly or through visual or voice contact with another employee, unless such a device is not required in subparagraph (ii) of this paragraph.
(b) If there is ever just one employee on the premises while the facility is operating, the employee must have immediate access to a device, such as a telephone (immediately available at the scene of operation) or a hand-held two-way radio, capable of summoning external emergency assistance.
(v) Required aisle space. The owner or operator must maintain aisle space to allow the unobstructed movement of personnel, fire protection equipment, spill control equipment, and decontamination equipment to any area of facility operation in an emergency, unless aisle space is not needed for any of these purposes.
(vi) Arrangements with local authorities.
(a) The owner or operator must attempt to make the following arrangements, as appropriate for the type of used oil handled at the facility and the potential need for the services of these organizations:
(1) arrangements to familiarize police, fire departments, and emergency response teams with the layout of the facility, properties of used oil handled at the facility and associated hazards, places where facility personnel would normally be working, entrances to roads inside the facility, and possible evacuation routes;
(2) where more than one police and fire department might respond to an emergency, agreements designating primary emergency authority to a specific police and a specific fire department, and agreements with any others to provide support to the primary emergency authority;
(3) agreements with State emergency response teams, emergency response contractors, and equipment suppliers; and
(4) arrangements to familiarize local hospitals with the properties of used oil handled at the facility and the types of injuries or illnesses which could result from fires, explosions, or releases at the facility.
(b) Where State or local authorities decline to enter into such arrangements, the owner or operator must document the refusal in the operating record.
(2) Contingency plan and emergency procedures. Owners and operators of used oil collection centers, transfer, processing and re-refining facilities must comply with the following requirements:
(i) Purpose and implementation of contingency plan.
(a) Each owner or operator must have a contingency plan for the facility. The contingency plan must be designed to minimize hazards to human health or the environment from fires, explosions, or any unplanned sudden or non-sudden release of used oil to air, soil, or surface water.
(b) The provisions of the plan must be carried out immediately whenever there is a fire, explosion, or release of used oil which could threaten human health or the environment. The facility operator must assure that the provisions of this plan are carried out in the event of an incident covered by it.
(ii) Content of contingency plan.
(a) The contingency plan must describe the actions facility personnel must take to comply with subparagraphs (i) and (vi) of this paragraph in response to fires, explosions, or any unplanned sudden or non-sudden release of used oil to air, soil, or surface water at the facility, and actions to be taken if the facility is shutdown for more than 24 hours.
(b) If the owner or operator has already prepared a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan in accordance with 40 CFR part 112, as incorporated by reference in section 370.1(e) of this Title, or some other emergency or contingency plan, the owner or operator need only amend that plan to incorporate used oil management provisions that are sufficient to comply with the requirements of this Subpart.
(c) The plan must describe arrangements agreed to by local police departments, fire departments, hospitals, contractors, and State and local emergency response teams to coordinate emergency services, pursuant to subparagraph (c)(1)(vi) of this section.
(d) The plan must list names, addresses, and phone numbers (office and home) of all persons qualified to act as emergency coordinator (see subparagraph [v] of this paragraph), and this list must be kept up to date. Where more than one person is listed, one must be named as primary emergency coordinator and others must be listed in the order in which they will assume responsibility as alternates.
(e) The plan must include a list of all emergency equipment at the facility (such as fire extinguishing systems, spill control equipment, communications and alarm systems [internal and external], and decontamination equipment), where this equipment is required. This list must be kept up to date. In addition, the plan must include the location and a physical description of each item on the list, and a brief outline of its capabilities.
(f) The plan must include an evacuation plan for facility personnel, including a description of signal(s) to be used to begin evacuation, evacuation routes, and alternate evacuation routes (in cases where the primary routes could be blocked by releases of used oil or fires).
(iii) Copies of contingency plan. A copy of the contingency plan and all revisions to the plan must be:
(a) maintained at the facility; and
(b) submitted to all local police departments, fire departments, hospitals, and State and local emergency response teams that may be called upon to provide emergency services.
(iv) Amendment of contingency plan. The contingency plan must be reviewed, and immediately amended, if necessary, whenever:
(a) applicable regulations are revised;
(b) the plan fails in an emergency;
(c) the facility changes - in its design, construction, operation, maintenance, or other circumstances - in a way that materially increases the potential for fires, explosions, or releases of used oil, or changes the response necessary in an emergency;
(d) the list of emergency coordinators changes; or
(e) the list of emergency equipment changes.
(v) Emergency coordinator. At all times, there must be at least one employee either on the facility premises or on call (i.e., available to respond to an emergency by reaching the facility within a short period of time) with the responsibility for coordinating all emergency response measures. This emergency coordinator must be thoroughly familiar with all aspects of the facility's contingency plan, all operations and activities at the facility, the location and characteristics of used oil handled, the location of all records within the facility, and facility layout. In addition, this person must have the authority to commit the resources needed to carry out the contingency plan. Guidance: The emergency coordinator's responsibilities are more fully spelled out in subparagraph (vi) of this paragraph. Applicable responsibilities for the emergency coordinator vary, depending on factors such as type and variety of used oil handled by the facility, and type and complexity of the facility.
(vi) Emergency procedures.
(a) Whenever there is an imminent or actual emergency situation, the emergency coordinator (or the designee when the emergency coordinator is on call) must immediately:
(1) activate internal facility alarms or communication systems, where applicable, to notify all facility personnel; and
(2) notify appropriate State or local agencies with designated response roles if their help is needed.
(b) Whenever there is a release, fire, or explosion, the emergency coordinator must immediately identify the character, exact source, amount, and areal extent of any released materials. This may be done by observation or review of facility records of logs, invoices, manifests, bills of lading, or other shipping documents and, if necessary, by chemical analysis.
(c) Concurrently, the emergency coordinator must assess possible hazards to human health or the environment that may result from the release, fire, or explosion. This assessment must consider both direct and indirect effects of the release, fire, or explosion (e.g., the effects of any toxic, irritating, or asphyxiating gases that are generated, or the effects of any hazardous surface water run-offs from water or chemical agents used to control fire and heat-induced explosions).
(d) If the emergency coordinator determines that the facility has had a release, fire, or explosion which could threaten human health, or the environment, outside the facility, the incident must be assessed and findings reported as follows:
(1) if the assessment indicated that evacuation of local areas may be advisable, the emergency coordinator must immediately notify appropriate local authorities. The coordinator must be available to help appropriate officials decide whether local areas should be evacuated; and
(2) within two hours of detecting a spill, discharge, or release of used oil, the emergency coordinator must notify the department Spill Hotline at (800) 457-7362, or, if calling from out of state, (518) 457-7362. The emergency coordinator must immediately notify either the government official designated as the on-scene coordinator (in the applicable National Contingency Plan under part 300 of title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, as incorporated by reference in section 370.1[e] of this Title), or the National Response Center (using their 24-hour toll free number [800] 424-8802). The report must include:
(i) name and telephone number of reporter;
(ii) name and address of facility;
(iii) time and type of incident (e.g., release, fire);
(iv) name and quantity of material(s) involved, to the extent known;
(v) the extent of injuries, if any; and
(vi) the possible hazards to human health, or the environment, outside the facility.
(e) During an emergency, the emergency coordinator must take all reasonable measures necessary to ensure that fires, explosions, and releases do not occur, recur, or spread to other used oil, hazardous waste, solid waste or used oil-derived fuels or products at the facility. These measures must include, where applicable, stopping processes and operation, collecting and containing released used oil, and removing or isolating containers.
(f) If the facility stops operation in response to a fire, explosion, or release, the emergency coordinator must monitor for leaks, pressure buildup, gas generation, or ruptures in valves, pipes, or other equipment, wherever this is appropriate.
(g) Immediately after an emergency, the emergency coordinator must provide for recycling, storing, or disposing of recovered used oil, contaminated soil or surface water, or any other material that results from a release, fire, or explosion at the facility.
(h) The emergency coordinator must ensure that, in the affected area(s) of the facility:
(1) no waste or used oil that may be incompatible with the released material is recycled, treated, stored, or disposed of until cleanup procedures are completed;
(2) all emergency equipment listed in the contingency plan is cleaned and fit for its intended use before operations are resumed; and
(3) the owner or operator must notify the regional director of the department in the region in which the facility is located and local authorities that the facility is in compliance with subclauses (1) and (2) of this clause before operations are resumed in the affected area(s) of the facility.
(i) The owner or operator must note in the operating record: the time, date, and details of any incident that requires implementing the contingency plan. Within 15 days after the incident, the owner or operator must submit a written report on the incident to the EPA regional administrator and the regional director of the department in the region in which the facility is located. The report must include:
(1) name, address, and telephone number of the owner or operator;
(2) name, address, and telephone number of the facility;
(3) date, time, and type of incident (e.g., fire, explosion);
(4) name and quantity of material(s) involved;
(5) the extent of injuries, if any;
(6) an assessment of actual or potential hazards to human health or the environment, where this is applicable; and
(7) estimated quantity and disposition of recovered material that resulted from the incident.
(d) Quality control and rebuttable presumption for used oil.
(1) To ensure that used oil managed at a used oil processing/re-refining facility is not hazardous waste under the rebuttable presumption of section 374-2.2(a)(2)(i)(b) of this Subpart, the facility owner or operator must determine whether the total halogen content of used oil managed at the facility is greater than or equal to 1,000 ppm. The owner or operator must make this determination, upon arrival of every used oil transport vehicle at the facility, by obtaining a sample from each incoming load, in accordance with Appendix 19 of this Title or a method shown to be equivalent under section 370.3(a) and (b) of this Title. Such sample must be tested by using an analytical method from SW-846, as incorporated by reference in section 370.1(e)(8) of this Title, to determine whether the total halogen content of the load, whether or not commingled from various generators, is greater than or equal to 1,000 ppm.
(i) If the tests for total halogens are performed at other than a department acceptable laboratory, then five percent of all tests must have split samples taken and transmitted to a laboratory acceptable to the department.
(2) If the used oil contains greater than or equal to 1,000 ppm total halogens, it is presumed to be a hazardous waste because it has been mixed with halogenated hazardous waste listed in section 371.4 of this Title. The owner or operator may rebut the presumption by demonstrating that the used oil does not contain hazardous waste (for example, by demonstrating that the used oil does not contain significant concentrations of halogenated hazardous constituents listed in Appendix 23 of this Title).
(i) Laboratory analyses completed for purposes of rebuttable presumption must be performed by a laboratory currently certified under the appropriate approval categories by the New York State Department of Health's Environmental Laboratory Approval Program (ELAP).
(ii) The rebuttable presumption does not apply to metalworking oils/fluids containing chlorinated paraffins, if they are processed through a tolling arrangement, as described in section 374-2.3(e)(3) of this Subpart, to reclaim metalworking oils/fluids. The presumption does apply to metalworking oils/fluids if such oils/fluids are recycled in any other manner, or disposed.
(iii) The rebuttable presumption does not apply to used oils contaminated with chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) removed from refrigeration units where the CFCs are destined for reclamation. The rebuttable presumption does apply to used oils contaminated with CFCs that have been mixed with used oil from sources other than refrigeration units.
(3) If the owner or operator of a used oil processing/re-refining facility does not attempt or is unable to rebut the presumption, the owner or operator must immediately contact the appropriate department Regional Environmental Remediation Engineer and reject the load, in accordance with the procedures of paragraph (f)(3) of this section.
(4) Used oil containing 50 ppm by weight, or greater, of PCBs is a hazardous waste, excluding oil derived from small capacitors, as defined in section 371.4(e)(3)(ii) of this Title, as the sole PCB contamination source. Applicable standards are contained in Part 370 through Subpart 374-1 and Part 376 of this Title.
(e) Used oil management.
Used oil processors/re-refiners are subject to all applicable Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures (40 CFR part 112, as incorporated by reference in section 370.1[e] of this Title) in addition to the requirements of this section.
