The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the launch of an EPA sponsored Combustion Portal.
The new portal, http://www.combustionportal.org/, was developed in collaboration with the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences and EPA. The portal provides federal and state compliance and pollution prevention information regarding: boilers; incinerators; hazardous waste combustion units, stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE); and wood heating appliances.
For the first time, regulated entities have easy access to potential air, water and waste regulatory impacts affecting their combustion activities, including New Source Performance Standards, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, indirect and direct water discharges, and Spill Prevention, Control and Counter Measures.
In addition, combustion calculators are available to help estimate emissions and rule requirements. Lastly, the Combustion Portal provides links to help regulated entities reduce the quantity of pollution generated.
This list serve article is intended for consultants, industries, environmental groups, general public, and other entities regulated under the Clean Air Act. It was written by the DNR Air Quality Bureau to share regulatory news, program updates and technical guidance.
