Waste Incineration at the Oak Ridge Reservation
The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Incinerator is located at the East Tennessee Technology Park (ETTP) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. It is the only incinerator in the Department of Energy (Department) that is permitted to treat TSCA-regulated, radioactively contaminated polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) waste. The objective of this audit was to determine whether the Department operated the TSCA Incinerator at the capacity permitted by the State of Tennessee.
