Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources and Emission Guidelines for Existing Sources: Other Solid Waste Incineration Units

a.k.a. NSPS & EG for Other Solid Waste Incinerators (OSWI) (subparts EEEE & FFFF)

RIN: 2060-AQ72 (What's this?)

Docket No.: Not yet available (What's this?)

Current Phase: Pre-Proposal (What's this?)

EPA promulgated emissions standards for Other Solid Waste Incineration (OSWI) units on December 16, 2005. Units covered under this rule include certain very small municipal waste combustion and institutional waste incineration units.

EPA received a petition for reconsideration of the OSWI standards on February 14, 2006, regarding the exclusion of certain categories, including sewage sludge incineration (SSI). While EPA granted the petition for reconsideration on June 28, 2006, EPA's final review, which became effective January 22, 2007, concluded that no additional changes were necessary to the 2005 OSWI rule (71 FR 36726). That litigation is currently being held in abeyance. However, EPA currently intends to revise the emission standards for OSWI units, and that rulemaking would address all OSWI units except SSI units.
