EPA issued in the March 21 Federal Register final rulemaking for new stationary sources and emission guidelines for existing sewage sludge incineration units To determine that materials are non-hazardous secondary materials when burned under this rule, materials must not have been discarded and must be legitimately used as a fuel. EPA determined that biosolids were considered as material that is discarded in sewage sludge incinerators (SSIs), and thus a solid waste, prompting the Section 129 CAA rulemaking. This final rule sets limits for nine pollutants under section 129 of the Clean Air Act: cadmium, carbon monoxide, hydrogen chloride, lead, mercury, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans, and sulfur dioxide. This final rule is also effective on May 20, 2011.
This no charge webcast, hosted by the National Biosolids Partnership (NBP), will bring together plant operators, utility management, consulting engineering, regulators, equipment/process vendors, and academics interested in learning the implementation issues, technologies, and challenges facing wastewater facilities that practice SS. Join NBP for its next “no charge” quarterly webcasts/webinars based on critical biosolids technical topics.
