NBP Webcast: Compliance and Testing Requirements to Meet the Sewage Sludge Incineration MACT Standards - Part 2

07/25/2012 - 2:00 - 3:45 pm EDT

Introduction:

This webcast has now passed.  Please check the Webcasts page for information on any plans for future offerings.  If you are interested in viewing the webcast recording, please email webcasts@wef.org.

 

EPA issued in the March 21, 2011 Federal Register final rulemaking for new stationary sources and emission guidelines for existing sewage sludge incineration (SSI) 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 SSIs, and thus a solid waste, prompting the Section 129 CAA rulemaking (maximum achievable control technology [MACT].  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. 

The National Biosolids Partnership (NBP) sponsored an initial webcast on this rulemaking on April 25, 2011 to present issues and challenges associated with the rulemaking. This July 25, 2012 follow up webcast will provide a detailed overview from EPA’s Office of Air & Radiation regarding compliance requirements and timelines to meet the SSI MACT rulemaking.  Other speakers will provide an overview of testing, POTW compliance, and next steps. Compliance deadline with the rulemakiing is set for May 21, 2016.

The preamble to the rule discusses the final standards as they apply to the owner or operator of a new or existing SSI unit. This preamble also describes the major requirements of the SSI regulations. Interested webcast participants are encouraged to review the March 21, 2011 Federal Register document. In addition, for a full description of the final requirements and compliance times, see the SSI standards in subparts LLLL and MMMM.

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 sewage sludge incineration.  Join NBP for its next “no charge” quarterly webcasts/webinars based on critical biosolids technical topics.

 

This webcast is a continuation of the "Implementing the New Sewage Sludge Incineration MACT Standards - Issues and Challenges Ahead" webcast. If you would like to view the recording of this webcast, please email webcasts@wef.org.
