Other Solid Waste Incinerators (OSWI): New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and Emission Guidelines (EG) for Existing Sources

Rule Summary

EPA promulgated new source performance standards (NSPS) and emission guidelines (EG) for new and existing ‘‘other’’ solid waste incineration units (OSWI). The final rules for OSWI units fulfill the requirements of sections 111 and 129 of the Clean Air Act (CAA), 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.
