In the United States, there are the twelve furnace sites which have been upgraded to meet RCRA requirements. There are currently four permitted furnace systems. Four other furnace systems are at different stages in the permitting process See Figure 1. The reason for the reduction in the number of sites which are pursuing part B permits is because of funding constraints and directives imposed by HQIOC such as furnace workload both near term and long term. With respect to the four permitted furnace sites, the first one, at Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, has been permitted and operating since 1990. The second, at Iowa Army Ammunition Plant, has been permitted for operation in 1994. The third, at Kansas Army Ammunition Plant, finished trial burn testing in late 1995 and is waiting for state approval to start production. The fourth, at Tooele Army Depot, was issued a RCRA Part B permit on 22 March 1993, modifications approved in December 1995, and production started in March 1996.
