Title: Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources and Emission Guidelines for Existing Sources: Other Solid Waste Incineration Units Review 

EPA promulgated emissions standards for Other Solid Waste Incineration (OSWI) units on December 16, 2005. Units covered under this rule include certain very small municipal waste combustion and institutional waste incineration units. On September 14, 2018, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ordered EPA to "review and revise" the OSWI standards and guidelines and publish a notice of proposed rulemaking by August 31, 2020, and promulgate a final rule by May 31, 2021. EPA is finalizing this action, in light of the statutory requirements under Clean Air Act section 129(a)(5) and the case law relevant to those requirements, to review and revise the OSWI standards and guidelines.
