EPA Amends Emission Standards for Hazardous Waste Combustors Rule

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is amending the 2005 National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) rule for new and existing hazardous waste combustors. The agency has revised or clarified several compliance and monitoring provisions and has also corrected several omissions and typographical errors, it said yesterday. This action will reduce compliance uncertainties and will improve understanding of the final rule requirements, EPA says.

The rule should be published in the Federal Register within the next two weeks. For more information on the NESHAP amendments, visit epa.gov/epaoswer/hazwaste/combust/finalmact/index.htm.
