Frequent Questions

Why doesn't EPA require use of other CEMS -- total mercury, multimetals, total chlorine -as proposed in the Hazardous Waste Combustion Emission Standards Rule?

The Agency is actively pursuing the development of these and other CEMS. But, substantial additional work needs to be done before these CEMS can be required.
