the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Com mission resulted in several directions for staff members on the issue of haz ardous waste burning in cement kilns After hearing comments from those involved in the issues the commis sion asked the staff to follow these recommendations continue to await the results of Environmental Protec tion Agency concerning the possibili ty of funding for health studies to work toward a clean fuels package to know the implications of burning everything in hazardous wastes includ ing solvents and to study having an emission standard that applies nearly same regulations on cement kilns as those placed commercial incinerators with some consideration being given to the fact that the kilns also use raw materials One of the recommendations given by the staff included authorizing the drafting of rules to establish the tech nical standards for management and onsite disposal of cement kiln dust that are equivalent to technical stan dards for munici pal waste man agement According to TNRCC staff this Pennlngton would require than cement kiln dust landfills be designed to prevent migration of cement kiln dust or leachate Several people from New Braunfels attended the meeting to speak their minds about the burning of hazardous waste and the management of cement kiln dust City councilman Paul Fraser told the group he supports having cement kilns regulated equally with the same standards as hazardous waste inciner ators He also said he supports a 5 percent opacity of stack emissions as the min imum acceptable air quality standard using natural gas for a baseline com parison when burning hazardous waste as a fuel source and labeling products produced by cement plants utilizing hazardous waste as fuel Fraser also explained that the need for places to burn hazardous waste is already being met He said a needs assessment study showed that for wastes generated in Texas Texas will have approximately twice as much available capacity in 1995 for commercial liquid hazardous waste incineration as the estimated in state demand of Paul Pennington a board member of the New Braunfels environmental group Securing a Future Environment also spoke to the commission Pen nington supported the same concepts as Fraser Cement kilns are designed to make cement not burn hazardous waste We support coequal fuels We were hope ful to at least get clean he said Sarah Schrank a resident of Solms said she believes cement kiln dust may cause health problems for residents in the area The residents of Solms feel they are the forgotten she said Solms is located near Lafarge how ever Lafarge does not use hazardous waste as a fuel at its plant Other speakers such as former New Jersey Governor Jim Florio Wade Thomason of the American Lung Association Neil Carman of the Sier ra Club and several residents from the Midlothian area spoke for more regu lations for cement plants burning haz ardous waste Speaking on the side of the cement companies were Jim Ingram an attor ney for North Texas Cement Compa ny and Pam Giblin who represents several cement companies Ingram said North Texas Cement believes the commission is taking the right approach in the management of cement kiln dust You are taking a leadership role by moving forward and establishing standards All of the other states will be watching carefully and he said Swap Meet Car and Truck
