Abstract:
On July 6, 1999 EPA proposed a federal plan for hospital/medical/infectious waste incinerators (HMIWI) constructed on or before June 20, 1996. This regulation would implement the HMIWI Emission Guidelines that EPA issued on September 15, 1997.
The proposed HMIWI federal plan would cover those emissions sources for which a State or Tribal agency does not have an EPA-approved emissions control plan in effect by September 15, 1999. The federal plan no longer applies when a State plan is approved.
