EPA proposes to reopen a Clean Air Act permit for a hazardous waste combusting facility in southern Illinois. U.S. EPA is undertaking 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 would include “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 permit also would include additional requirements for monitoring the waste incinerated by Veolia at the facility.
U.S. EPA has 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. U.S. EPA will not issue a final permit until after the public has a chance to comment.
Submit written comments to U.S. EPA by Friday, April 1, 2013 regarding our proposal to reopen and modify Veolia’s Title V permit.
