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. EPA will provide a response to the comments received on the permit proposed in January 2013 along with its proposed decision on the renewal application discussed above. The comments received on the draft reopening of Veolia’s permit can be viewed online at www.regulations.gov Docket ID No EPA-R05-OAR-2012-0649.
