The Hazardous Waste Combustion NESHAP limits emissions of the following Clean Air Act hazardous air pollutants (HAPs): chlorinated dioxins and furans, mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, beryllium, chromium, hydrochloric acid/chlorine gas, antimony, cobalt, manganese, nickel, selenium, and nondioxin and furan organic HAPs. For some of the above-listed HAPs, we chose to use surrogate emission limits. Specifically, antimony, cobalt, manganese, nickel and selenium emissions are controlled through a surrogate particulate matter standard; nondioxin and furan organic HAP emissions are controlled through surrogate carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon, and destruction and removal efficiency standards.
