EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AR77 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: ●Federal Plan Requirements for Sewage Sludge Incineration Units Constructed on or Before October 14, 2010 
Abstract: On March 21, 2011, the EPA promulgated new source performance standards and emission guidelines for sewage sludge incineration units located at wastewater treatment facilities designed to treat domestic sewage sludge. This final rule set limits for nine pollutants under section 129 of the Clean Air Act: Cadmium, carbon monoxide, hydrogen chloride, lead, mercury, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans, and sulfur dioxide. Section 129(b)(2) of the Clean Air Act directs States with existing sewage sludge incinerators subject to the emission guidelines to submit plans to the EPA that implement and enforce the emission guidelines. The deadline for States to submit new State plans to the EPA for review was March 21, 2012. If a State with existing sewage sludge incinerators does not submit an approvable plan within 2 years after promulgation of the emission guidelines, section 129(b)(3) of the Clean Air Act requires the EPA to develop, implement, and enforce a Federal plan for sewage sludge incinerators in the State. This action proposes the sewage sludge incinerators Federal plan to implement the emission guidelines adopted on March 21, 2011, for those States that do not have an approved new State plan implementing the emission guidelines, as amended, in place by March 21, 2012.
