Environmental Groups Petition EPA For Toxic Reporting By Incinerators

A rulemaking petition filed on April 3 by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility and the Energy Justice Network seeks to require waste incinerators to report their toxic chemical emissions to EPA’s Toxics Release Inventory. The petition would cover incinerators that burn municipal solid waste (10 in NY, including in Hudson Falls and Poughkeepsie), industrial waste, medical waste, and sewage sludge, as well as pyrolysis and gasification units (aka chemical recycling), about 400 facilities nationwide. Mike Ewall of the Energy Justice Network talks to Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
