Title:MAXIMUM ACHIEVALBE CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (MACT) RULEMAKING FOR HAZARDOUS WASTE COMBUSTORS
RCRA Online Number:11984
Date:04/10/1996
To:Carman
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:Sierra Club
Description: Improperly designed hazardous waste incinerators and cement and light weight aggregate kilns (BIFs) can pose a hazard. EPA signed the proposed MACT rule on March 20, 1996, (61 FR 17358; 4/19/96) to establish tough dioxin, mercury, and lead emission standards (SEE ALSO: 64 FR 52828; 9/30/99). The Agency will continue to use the omnibus permitting authority (270.32(b)(2) and 3005(c)(3)) to ensure protection on a site-specific basis. The Agency remains committed to developing tailored regulations in conjunction with the existing authorities for Bevill exempt cement kiln dust (CKD). Addresses the risks from CKD management identified in the CKD regulatory determination (60 FR 7366; 2/7/95). The decision affects all CKD, regardless of the fuel burned. The CKD program will be risk-based, flexible, and tailored to site-specific conditions.
