EPA PROPOSES AMENDMENTS TO THE SPCC RULE On December 2, 2005, two proposed amendments to the Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Rule were signed. The first streamlines the regulatory requirements for qualified facilities and equipment regulated under 40 CFR Part 112. The second extends the SPCC compliance dates for all facilities. The official rule will be available on EPA’s website as soon as it is published by the Federal Register Office. EPA also recently released the SPCC Guidance for Regional Inspectors. The guidance document is intended to assist regional inspectors in reviewing a facility’s implementation of the SPCC rule. With its publication, EPA seeks to establish a consistent understanding among regional EPA inspectors on how particular provisions of the rule may be applied. The SPCC Guidance for Regional Inspectors is available online at http://epa.gov/oilspill/guidance.htm.

NOVEMBER MEETING Ash Grove Cement, Overland Park, KS
M B E r
The Heartland Chapter’s November meeting was held at Ash Grove’s Corporate offices in Overland Park, Kansas. A tour of the Technical Center was hosted by Dave Martin, Ash Grove’s Technical Center Manager. Mr. Martin was assisted by Dawn Brockman, Research Chemist in charge of waste-derived fuel testing. The tour lasted about an hour with our tour guides explaining that the purpose of the technical Center at Ash Grove is to analyze the cement product, and the raw materials and fuels that go into making the cement, chemistry and physical characteristics to ensure that their products meet stringent ASTM standards for cement quality but to also to help identify and solve real and potential product problems encountered in the field. Mr. Martin and Ms. Brockman explained the uses of all of the laboratory equipment used and the various types of tests run at the Technical Center and answered many questions about cement production that our chapter members had. Most of our members were very surprised at the complexity of manufacturing cement and greatly enjoyed the tour. The tour was followed by a catered dinner sponsored by Ash Grove in their “Town Center”. Thanks Ash Grove, for a great evening!
