Waste Management: Combustion Specialty Services

Combustion of hazardous wastes, non-hazardous wastes, and secondary materials is subject to overlapping regulatory requirements for waste combustors and energy recovery operations implemented to fulfill the Clean Air Act (CAA) and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Trinity staff have been involved in industry and regulatory work groups for these regulations since their inception decades ago, through each new regulation that has been enacted. We continuously work with facilities to ensure critical implementation plans are developed and ongoing compliance is maintained. Consequently, we are uniquely able to help your facility navigate the solid and hazardous waste provisions of a RCRA Part B as well as the various National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) such as the Hazardous Waste Combustor MACT (HWC MACT) or the Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incinerator Rule (CISWI). Some of our related expert services include:

  • HWC MACT implementation
  • CISWI interpretation and implementation
  • Construction and operating permitting support
