Coal Combustion Residuals Rulemaking

SEA was retained by a consortium of national environmental groups to analyze the historical impact of RCRA regulations on the recycling of hazardous waste since the inception of the Program in 1980.  Final report also analyzed the many false claims of “stigma” purportedly associated with RCRA regulation of waste recycling practices.

Mercury Recycling Regulations

SEA worked with a leading recycler of mercury wastes to address various loopholes in current regulations and to develop new legislation to enhance the recovery of mercury from a wide range of manufacturing and consumer wastes.

Recycling Facility Siting and Permitting

A firm which provides environmental services to the computer industry sought to locate a recycling facility for their proprietary modules in the Mid-Atlantic region. SEA assisted the firm with all phases of facility siting and permitting including an assessment of the applicability of state and Federal RCRA regulations and related environmental statutes.

Unpermitted Burning

Was retained by a government agency to support an ongoing enforcement action against a recycling facility burning and blending hazardous waste without possessing the proper RCRA permit. Prepared an Expert Report regarding the scope and applicability of RCRA’s incineration and thermal destruction regulations to the facility in question.
