The EPA also will hold three public hearings in June on proposals cutting mercury emissions in half and significantly reducing other toxic air pollutants from industrial and institutional boilers, process heaters and solid waste incinerators. The agency will also take comment at the hearings on a proposal to identify which non-hazardous secondary materials would be considered solid waste and which would be considered fuel.
Secondary materials are those that are not the primary product of a manufacturing or commercial process and include consumer and industrial materials that are no longer used for their original purpose, such as scrap tires, used oil, wood, coal refuse, and construction and demolition debris.
The hearings will go from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., local time in Arlington, Va., on June 15; in Houston on June 22, and also in Los Angeles on June 22.
To preregister to speak at the hearings, please contact Teresa Clemons at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 919-541-0252.
