Frequent Questions

How many incinerators are likely to cease burning hazardous waste due to the compliance costs associated with achieving the Hazardous Waste Combustion Emission Standards?

Our economic model projects zero commercial incinerator market exits as a result of the final standards. For private on-site facilities, these standards are projected to result in 13 to 16 facilities (out of a total of 111) deciding to stop burning hazardous waste. The market exit estimates presented here are incremental to projected exits in the baseline.
