Figures from BDAT
show there were 417 young people aged 18 and under who visited a specialist drug centre in Pershore Street between April 2005 and March this year.
The soil treatment standards developed by EPA can be achieved using a variety of treatment technologies rather than the "best" technology required by the BDAT
. The soil treatment standards require that the concentrations of hazardous constituents in contaminated soils be reduced by 90 percent or be reduced to a level equal to 10 times the universal treatment standards (UTS), whichever is greater.
None of the treated waste samples leached lead or cadmium at levels above the hazardous waste limits, which are also the BDAT limits, in either the TCLP or the EP-Toxicity Tests.
The EP-Toxicity and TCLP leaching results for lead and cadmium are significantly below the hazardous waste and BDAT limits.
In its regulations, the EPA identified the Best Demonstrated Available Technology (BDAT
) for a large number of wastes.
Third, the foundry should know the available state-of-the-art treatment methods that constitute the "best determined available technology" (BDAT
) and alternatives, including chemical treatment, reuse, incineration, recycling, metal recovery, stabilization and chemical fixation.
The treatment standards themselves were set based on an EPA review of the Best Demonstrated Available Technology (BDAT
) for a particular waste.
Treatment standards for restricted wastes are based on the best demonstrated available technology (BDAT
) for each individual hazardous constituent in each listed waste.
