§ 271.824. Approval or denial of an application.

 The Department will not issue a general permit for a category of beneficial use or processing of municipal waste unless the applicant has affirmatively demonstrated the following:

   (1)  The application for the general permit is accurate and complete and the requirements of § §  271.811, 271.812, 271.821—271.826, 271.831, 271.832, 271.841—271.843, 271.851 and 271.852 have been complied with.

   (2)  The proposed beneficial use or processing activities will be conducted in a manner that will not harm or present a threat of harm to the health, safety or welfare of the people or environment of this Commonwealth through exposure to constituents of the waste during or after the proposed beneficial use or processing activities. Use of the waste as an ingredient in an industrial process or as a substitute for a commercial product may not present a greater harm or threat of harm than the use of the product or ingredient which the waste is replacing.

   (3)  For beneficial use general permits, the physical character and chemical composition of the municipal waste which is proposed to be covered by the general permit contributes to the proposed beneficial use, and the physical character and chemical composition of the municipal waste does not interfere with the proposed beneficial use.
