Chapter 121, Emission Limitations and Emission Testing of Resource Recovery Facilities
03/13/2019 04:09 PM EDT

Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990 requires each state with municipal waste combustion facilities to adopt a Municipal Waste Combustor (MWC) 111(d)/129 Plan that demonstrates implementation of federal emission guidelines for reductions in emissions of air pollutants from solid waste combustion, such guidelines established as directed by Section 129 of the CAAA. Federal requirements applicable to Maine MWC facilities were promulgated in federal subparts.

Maine regulation 06-096 C.M.R. Chapter 121, Emission Limitations and Emission Testing of Resource Recovery Facilities, first promulgated in 1989, was updated in 2007. Maine submitted the required MWC 111(d)/129 Plan which incorporated requirements and emission limitations of applicable subparts. The State Plan submitted in 2007 did not obtain EPA final approval. Chapter 121 and the corresponding State Plan have been revised and updated based on recent EPA comments on the 2007 submittal and input from the three facilities in the State subject to this rule.

These amendments will be submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for approval in Maine's State Implementation Plan.
