Proposed rule.


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposes to approve a revision to the Wyoming hospital/medical/infectious waste incinerator (HMIWI) Section 111(d)/129 plan (the “plan”). The revision contains a modified state rule for solid waste combustion that was updated as a result of the October 6, 2009, amendments to federal emission guidelines (EG) and New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), 40 CFR part 60, subparts Ce and Ec, respectively. This revision and approval action relate only to HMIWI units.

In the “Rules and Regulations” section of this Federal Register, the EPA is approving Wyoming's HMIWI plan revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the agency views this as a noncontroversial SIP revision and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the preamble to the direct final rule. If the EPA receives no adverse comments, the EPA will not take further action on this proposed rule. If the EPA receives adverse comments, the EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. The EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. Please note that if the EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, the EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. See the information provided in the Direct Final action of the same title which is located in the Rules and Regulations Section of this Federal Register.
