Frequent Questions

Did EPA repromulgate all the compliance provisions for incinerators, cement kilns, and lightweight aggregate kilns in the October 2005 Final Hazardous Waste Combustor MACT Rule?

EPA did not repromulgate the 1999 compliance provisions (provisions that specify the means by which sources comply with the emission standards, which include testing, operating limits, notification, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements) for incinerators, cement kilns, and lightweight aggregate kilns. The final rule adopted these same compliance provisions for Phase II sources--boilers and hydrochloric acid production furnaces.
