Rule and Implementation Information for Large Municipal Waste Combustors
The purpose of this page is to provide information regarding EPA's air emission regulations for Large MWC Units. A separate web page has been created for Small MWC Units. Information is categorized into three groups as follows: (1) Rule Information, (2) Technical Information, and (3) Implementation Information. Descriptions of (and direct links to) these areas are provided below.
Rule Information -- This area contains Federal Register notices for both proposed and promulgated (final) rules.
