Disposal of Activated Carbon from Chemical Agent Disposal Facilities THIRD COMMITTEE MEETING AUGUST 18-20, 2008 IRVINE, CALIFORNIA Objectives: Review first full-message draft, produce preliminary concurrence draft, determine what is not yet known and how to learn it, and determine path forward. SITE VISIT SEPTEMBER 4, 2008 TOOELE, UTAH Objective: Allow committee members who were not present in Anniston to visit an operating chemical agent disposal facility and discuss challenges entailed in disposing of chemical agent that might contain mercury. SITE VISIT SEPTEMBER 9, 2008 COLUMBUS, OHIO Objectives: Receive briefing on Calgon Carbon Corporation operations and facilities and tour facility; determine which types of spent activated carbon (AC) cannot be regenerated (probe for presence of mercury and agent); determine what the split is between regeneration, landfill, and incineration for all spent activated carbon and whether the split is different for spent powdered activated carbon and spent granular activated carbon; determine what fraction of the AC that is used in liquid-phase applications and/or gas-phase applications is regenerated; determine whether spent AC is hazardous waste under RCRA, which landfills will accept it, and which incinerators will accept it; determine how the AC filters in motor vehicles are handled at the end of their useful lives; determine what percentage of AC sold is granular and what percentage is powdered; determine whether Calgon would buy back regenerated AC; and determine whether Calgon ever disposes of AC and, if so, whether it ever has to incinerate it. FOURTH COMMITTEE MEETING SEPTEMBER 29-OCTOBER 1, 2008 IRVINE, CALIFORNIA Objectives: Review preliminary concurrence draft, produce next version of concurrence draft, determine what is not yet known and how to learn it, and determine path forward.
