Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION:

Proposed rule; extension of comment period.

SUMMARY:

In response to several commenters' request for more time to respond to issues, the Environmental Protection Agency is extending the comment period on its proposed amendments to NESHAP: Final Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants Waste Combustors. On July 3, 2001 (66 FR 35126), EPA proposed potential revisions to several compliance, testing, and monitoring provisions of the final rule that established emissions standards for hazardous waste burning cement kilns, lightweight aggregate kilns, and incinerators. The comment period announced in the proposed rule was scheduled to end on August 17. Today's action extends the comment period for 60 days. Stakeholders, however, have not requested an extension of the comment period for two other actions (see 66 FR 35087 and 66 FR 35124) also published in the Federal Register on July 3, 2001. Today's action does not change the date by which comments must be submitted for those two actions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 30, 1999, the NESHAP: Final Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Hazardous Waste Combustors was promulgated (64 FR 52828). On July 3, 2001, EPA proposed potential revisions to several compliance, testing, and monitoring provisions of the final rule (66 FR 35126). On July 24, 2001, the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia decided Cement Kiln Recycling Coalition, et al., v. EPA, et al., (D.C. Cir. No. 99-1457 (and consolidated cases)). This case decided several issues related to the September 30, 1999 final rule. In response to several commenters' requests for more time to respond to issues in the proposed rule considering the recent court decision, EPA is extending the proposed rule's comment period. This document extends the comment period for 60 days. Stakeholders, however, have not requested an extension of the comment period for two other actions (see 66 FR 35087 and 66 FR 35124) also published in the Federal Register on July 3, 2001. Today's action does not change the date by which comments must be submitted for those two actions.
