Regulation Authority :
R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-17.1-2(19)
R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 23-23
R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 42-35
Purpose and Reason :
The purpose of this regulation is to limit emissions from hospital, medical and infectious waste incinerators (HMIWI). The regulation is being amended to incorporate requirements of the Federal New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for HMIWI, 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart Ec, into Part 39 with the intention of making the RI regulation consistent with current Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements.
Additionally, definitions have been added and portions of the regulation that no longer apply have been eliminated. The regulation has been updated to current RI Code of Regulations (RICR) format which required the addition of an incorporated materials section.
Although R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-35-2.8, require that an oral hearing be granted if requested by twenty-five (25) persons, by an agency or by an association having at least twenty-five (25) members, an oral hearing will be granted if requested by one (1) or more persons during the public comment period.
