Title:CLARIFICATION REGARDING SINGLE EMISSION POINT, MULTI-DEVICE COMBUSTION FACILITIES
RCRA Online Number:13690
Date:07/29/1994
To:Davis and Sutton, Region 6
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: Provides clarification of operating and permit conditions for connected combustion units, like incinerators and BIFs, with a single emission point. When regulations conflict, preference is given to the more stringent or more technically appropriate standards. The RCRA Section 3005(c)(3) omnibus provisions may be appropriate. Units receive permits, or interim status, individually. Discusses the definition of a boiler. The industrial furnace definition applies to combustion units on a device-by-device basis (precalciner exception). Plasma arc and infrared units are incinerators when they have afterburners and miscellaneous units when they do not. A hazardous-waste fired afterburner is an incinerator.
