Frequent Questions

Are the Hazardous Waste Combustion Emission Standards going to make hazardous waste combustion safe?

Yes, in conjunction with the permitting process used by EPA and the States. That process will impose these technology-based standards and also any other operating requirements that might be needed on a facility-specific basis to ensure that human health and the environment are properly protected.
