Table of Contents

R307-223-1. Purpose and Applicability.

(1) R307-223 regulates emissions from existing small municipal waste combustion units. The purpose of R307-223 is to reduce the emissions of particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen chloride, oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, lead, cadmium, mercury, and dioxins and furans from small municipal waste combustion units. Reductions are required by 42 U.S.C. 7411(d) and 7429 and 40 CFR Part 60, subpart BBBB, and by the Plan for Existing Small Municipal Waste Combustion Units that is incorporated by reference at R307-220-4.

(2) R307-223 applies to each existing small municipal waste combustion unit that has the capacity to combust at least 35 tons per day but no more than 250 tons per day of municipal solid waste or refuse-derived fuel and commenced construction on or before August 30, 1999. A list of facilities not subject to R307-223 is found in 40 CFR 60.1555(a) through (k), effective as of the date referenced in R307-101-3, which is hereby adopted and incorporated by reference.

(3) If an owner or operator of a municipal waste combustion unit makes physical or operational changes to an existing municipal waste combustion unit primarily to comply with the Plan for Existing Small Municipal Waste Combustion Units that is incorporated by reference at R307-220-4, then R307-210 does not apply to that unit. Such changes do not constitute modifications or reconstructions under R307-210.

(4) The owner or operator of any source subject to R307-223 also is required to submit an application for an operating permit under R307-415.
