Veolia ES Technical Solutions LLC. (Veolia) has submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency an application to renew its Clean Air Act Title V operating permit. EPA issued Veolia’s initial permit on Sept. 12, 2008.  Veolia, which is located at 7 Mobile Avenue in Sauget, Illinois, stores and burns hazardous waste. EPA deemed Veolia’s application complete on September 11, 2013. 

EPA is proposing to approve Veolia’s application, and has issued for public comment a draft renewal operating permit (draft permit).  The draft permit does not change most requirements in the 2008 permit.  However, EPA is adding limits on how much arsenic, lead, mercury and other metals Veolia can put into its incinerators – known as the “feedrate limits” – as well as additional monitoring requirements to ensure that Veolia complies with its emissions limits.  The public may submit written comments on the draft permit until Dec. 19, 2014.

Comprehensive Performance Tests Reports

Proposed January 2013 Air Permit Reopening

In January 2013 EPA proposed to reopen a Clean Air Act permit for a hazardous waste combusting facility in southern Illinois. U.S. EPA proposed this permit action for Veolia ES Technical Solutions LLC., 7 Mobile Ave., Sauget, Ill., near St. Louis, to modify its Clean Air Act Title V operating permit. The revised permit included “feedrate” limits for certain heavy metals. Feedrate limits are the maximum amount of heavy metals Veolia can feed into the incinerator combustion unit per hour. The heavy metals include mercury, arsenic and lead. The proposed permit also included additional requirements for monitoring the waste incinerated by Veolia at the facility.

U.S. EPA based the proposed feedrate limits, which comply with applicable regulations, on available performance test data. Veolia will continue operating the combustors following the requirements of their current permit until a final revised permit is issued. EPA held a public hearing on February 19, 2013 and accepted comments on the proposed permit reopening until April 1, 2013.

After taking comment on the draft reopening of Veolia’s permit, because of the timing of EPA’s proposal in relationship to the expiration of Veolia’s existing permit and the regulatory requirement for Veolia to perform compliance testing, EPA decided instead to incorporate revisions into Veolia’s permit at renewal.
