June 7, 1988 Response to Request for Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) Applicability Determination 3.38
The question of whether use of tire-derived fuel (TDF) at an existing steam generating
facility can be classified as an alternative fuel generated from municipal solid waste
arose. The answer is that TDF does not, by itself, constitute municipal solid waste in
accordance with the definition contained in paragraph (b) of 40 CFR 60.51 and would not
qualify for a PSD exemption under subparagraph (b)(2)(iii)(d) of 40 CFR 52.21.
