Title:MAXIMUM ACHIEVABLE CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (MACT) REGULATIONS
RCRA Online Number:14224
Date:06/02/1998
To:Lee
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:Anson County and Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League
Description: The 1997 estimates show a reduction of dioxin/furan and mercury emissions from hazardous waste combustors as a result in part to the Hazardous Waste Combustion Strategy and the proposed maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standards. The “fast track” portion of the MACT rule contains waste minimization and pollution prevention requirements (SEE ALSO: 63 FR 33782; 6/19/98). The MACT proposal would require facilities to monitor emissions and conduct performance testing under the Clean Air Act requirements (SEE ALSO: 64 FR 52828; 9/30/99). The MACT floor standard is defined by the technologies used by the best performing (lowest emitting) 6 percent of sources for that hazardous air pollutant.
