Title: Development of a state hazardous waste management system: planning, ownership options, liability and management technologies

Abstract

The report is the first in a series concerning the development of hazardous waste management capabilities. Economic, technical, and legal aspects of the service component of a hazardous waste management system are examined to provide information to legislators and legislative staff in these areas and to identify future needs. The following issues are addressed: planning methodologies; ownership options; requirements for liability and financial responsibility; management technologies; resource conservation and recovery; and treatment and disposal technology. Tables and charts in the appendices provide a summary of resource and energy recovery potential for hazardous wastes in New York State; unit processes for resource recovery; an estimated magnitude of hazardous wastes from selected industries that are potentially recoverable or recyclable; the distribution of hazardous waste recovery operations in the United States; and unit identification for recovery, treatment, disposal and containment processes.
