The Federal plan will implement the emission guidelines for CISWI units located in States or Tribal areas that have not submitted an acceptable implementation plan to the EPA. The Federal plan will apply until individual States or Tribes have approved plans of their own in effect. For the majority of incinerators located in Indian Country and in U.S. territories, the Federal plan will be the sole authority compelling those sources to meet the final compliance deadline for required emission reductions.
The CISWI Federal plan applies to incinerators burning non-hazardous solid waste, such as rejected products that fail to meet production quality constraints, industrial sludges, packaging and shipping materials, wood wastes, construction and demolition materials, and other types of commercial and industrial wastes.
