NESHAP: Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Hazardous Waste Combustors (Final Amendments Rule)Rule02-337302/14/2002Environmental Protection AgencyEPA established standards for hazardous waste-burning cement kilns, lightweight aggregate kilns, and incinerators on September 30, 1999 (NESHAP: Final Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Hazardous Waste Combustors) pursuant to s … EPA established standards for hazardous waste-burning cement kilns, lightweight aggregate kilns, and incinerators on September 30, 1999 (NESHAP: Final Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Hazardous Waste Combustors) pursuant to section 112(d) of the Clean Air Act (CAA). This rule included not only the standards themselves, but a battery of provisions setting out the means by which the standards would be implemented. Following promulgation of this final rule, the regulated community, through informal comments, raised numerous issues on specific requirements of the rule relating to provisions implementing the emission standards. In response to these concerns, we proposed and requested comment on changes to discrete provisions in the final rule on July 3, 2001. Today's action finalizes some of the amendments proposed in that notice. These amendments do not change the numerical emission standards, but rather focus on improvements to the implementation of the emission standards, primarily in the areas of compliance, testing and monitoring. A related final rule establishing interim emission standards was published in the Federal Register on February 13, 2002.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2002/02/14/02-3373/neshap-standards-for-hazardous-air-pollutants-for-hazardous-waste-combustors-final-amendments-ruleFR-Doc-02-3373
NESHAP: Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Hazardous Waste CombustorsProposed Rule01-1642707/03/2001Environmental Protection AgencyEPA is proposing to take action on NESHAP: Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Hazardous Waste Combustors.

The revisions make targeted amendments to the regulations for hazardous waste burning cement kilns, lightweight aggregate kilns, and incinerators promulgated on September 30, 1999 (NESHAP: Final Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Hazardous Waste Combustors). The revisions make improvements to the implementation of the emission standards, primarily in the areas of compliance, testing and monitoring. We are proposing these revisions to make it easier to comply with the September 30, 1999 final rule. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of the Federal Register, we are amending the September 30, 1999 final rule without prior proposal to incorporate these revisions because we view the amendments as noncontroversial and anticipate no adverse comment. We have explained our reasons for this approach in the preamble to the direct final rule. If we receive adverse comment on a distinct amendment, however, we will withdraw the direct final action for that amendment and the amendment will not take effect. We will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. We will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on any amendment must do so at this time.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2001/07/03/01-16427/neshap-standards-for-hazardous-air-pollutants-for-hazardous-waste-combustorsFR-Doc-01-16427
Amendments to Streamline the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Program Regulations: Round TwoRule00-1076405/15/2000Environmental Protection AgencyThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is today revising the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) regulations. This revision is part of an Agency-wide effort to respond to a directive issued by the President on … The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is today revising the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) regulations. This revision is part of an Agency-wide effort to respond to a directive issued by the President on February 21, 1995, which directed Federal agencies to review their regulatory programs to eliminate any obsolete, ineffective, or unduly burdensome regulations. In response to that directive, EPA initiated a detailed review of its regulations to determine which provisions were obsolete, duplicative, or unduly burdensome. On June 29, 1995, EPA issued a rule (60 FR 33926) which removed some regulatory provisions in the Office of Water program regulations (including certain NPDES provisions) that were clearly obsolete. Today's revision is intended to further streamline NPDES, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD), and Underground Injection Control (UIC) permitting procedures, and CWA 301(h) variance request procedures, by revising requirements to eliminate redundant regulatory language, provide clarification, and remove or streamline unnecessary procedures which do not provide any environmental benefits. Conforming changes to other requirements are also made in today's rule. These revisions are identified and discussed in the Supplementary Information section below.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2000/05/15/00-10764/amendments-to-streamline-the-national-pollutant-discharge-elimination-system-program-regulationsFR-Doc-00-10764
