Air Pollutant Emission Standards And Guidelines For Municipal Waste Combustors--Revision And Update Of Economic Impact Analysis And Regulatory Impact Analysis, Final.
EPA is preparing for promulgation under Clean Air Act 111(b) emission standards for new MWCs and, under 111(d), emission guidelines for existing MWCs. The standards and guidelines will apply to MWCs with a capacity to combust 35 or more Mg of municipal solid waste per day. This report updates "Economic Impact of Air Pollutant Emission Standards for New Municipal Waste Combustors," EPA-450/3-89-006 (August 1989), "Economic Impact of Air Pollutant Emission Guidelines for Existing Municipal Waste Combustors," EPA-450/3-89-005 (August 1989), and "Regulatory Impact Analysis of Air Pollutant Emission Standards and Guidelines for Municipal Waste Combustors," EPA. October 1989. This update describes baseline projections of MWCs, economic analysis methodology, national costs and emission reductions attributable to the standards and guidelines, the sensitivity of costs to assumptions about capacity utilization and about materials separation requirements, and how the standards and guidelines may change communities' choices of waste disposal technology.
