Frequent Questions

What is EPA doing to encourage voluntary use of these Hazardous Waste Combustion Emission Standards CEMS?

The Hazardous Waste Combustion Emission Standards Rule encourages sources to petition the Administrator to use better compliance methods than those defined in the final rule. If CEMS are used for compliance with a given standard, sources would not be required to comply with the operating parameter limits that would otherwise apply for that standard.
