Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Notice of Variance from Classification as a Solid Waste APPLICATION. Blanchard Refining Company LLC (Blanchard) has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a variance from classification as a solid waste for a partially reclaimed material. The material is from the on-site reclamation of spent catalysts having the EPA hazardous waste code, K171 or K172, generated at Blanchard Refining’s Galveston Bay Refinery located at 2401 5th Avenue South, Texas City in Galveston County, Texas when the material is sent off-site for further reclamation. If approved, the material would no longer be regulated as a solid waste when further reclaimed as provided by Title 30 Texas Administrative Code Section 335.19(c). TCEQ’s Executive Director has made a preliminary decision to approve the application and drafted a preliminary variance. PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING.
