Processing and Conversion of Municipal Waste into a Fuel Product; Proposed General Permit WMGM037

[38 Pa.B. 6426]
[Saturday, November 22, 2008]

   Under the regulatory authority of 25 Pa. Code § 271.811 (relating to authorization for general permit) of the municipal waste regulations and the statutory authority of the Solid Waste Management Act (35 P. S. §§ 6018.101--6018.1003), the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is proposing a General Permit for the processing and conversion of municipal waste to produce a fuel product.

   This proposed General Permit authorizes permittees to process municipal waste to produce a fuel. Fuel manufactured under the authority of the permit is not considered a waste when marketed as a commodity in trade for use in an air contamination source approved through an Air Quality authorization issued by the Department under 25 Pa. Code Chapter 127 (relating to construction, modification, reactivation and operation of sources). General Permit WMGM037 will reduce the amount of waste disposed in landfills by providing a mechanism to divert waste suitable for use under this permit to a more productive, beneficial use.

   Comments concerning the general permit should be directed to Ronald Hassinger, Division of Municipal and Residual Waste, Bureau of Waste Management, Rachel Carson State Office Building, P. O. Box 8472, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8472, (717) 787-7381. Public comments must be received by January 21, 2009.

   Persons interested in obtaining more information or a paper copy of the proposed General Permit WMGM037 should contact Peter Arnt of the Division of Municipal and Residual Waste at (717) 787-7381. TDD users may contact the Department through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Services at (800) 654-5984. The General Permit WMGM037 document is also accessible on the Department's web site at (DEP Keywords: ''Participate''; then ''Proposals Currently Open for Comment'' or DEP Keywords: ''Municipal Waste'').

   The Department will provide public notice upon finalization of General Permit WMGM037.
