Solid waste incineration units; Very small municipal waste combustion units; and Institutional waste incineration units.
Clean Air Act
On November 30, 2005, EPA issued new source performance standards (NSPS) and emission guidelines for new and existing other solid waste incineration (OSWI) units. The final rules for OSWI units fulfill the requirements of sections 111 and 129 of the Clean Air Act, which require EPA to promulgate NSPS and emission guidelines for solid waste incineration units. The final rules, which address only the incineration of nonhazardous solid wastes, will protect public health by reducing exposure to air pollution. This file is the text of the final rule.
