STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Five

AN ACT relative to regulation of municipal waste combustors.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

72:1 New Section; Municipal Waste Combustion Requirements. Amend RSA 125-C by inserting after section 10 the following new section:

125-C:10-a Municipal Waste Combustion Units. Any municipal waste combustor, as defined in RSA 125-M:2, XI, with a design capacity of at least 35 tons per day but no more than 250 tons per day of municipal solid waste, as defined in RSA 125-M:2, X, shall be limited to the following levels of emissions, unless otherwise provided for by a more stringent federal regulation, or by other state statute:

I. Particulate matter: 27 milligrams/dry standard cubic meter, corrected to 7 percent oxygen, 3-run average (run duration specified in test method).

II. Opacity: 10 percent (6-minute average), 30 6-minute averages.

III. Cadmium: 0.040 milligrams/dry standard cubic meter, corrected to 7 percent oxygen, 3-run average (run duration specified in test method).

IV. Lead: 0.44 milligrams/dry standard cubic meter, corrected to 7 percent oxygen, 3-run average (run duration specified in test method).

V. Mercury: 0.028 milligrams/dry standard cubic meter, corrected to 7 percent oxygen, or 85 percent control efficiency, 3-run average (run duration specified in test method).

VI. Sulfur dioxide: 29 parts per million by volume, or 25 percent of the potential sulfur dioxide emission concentration, corrected to 7 percent oxygen (dry basis), monthly block geometric average concentration or percent reduction.

VII. Hydrogen chloride: 29 parts per million by volume, or 5 percent of the potential hydrogen chloride emission concentration, corrected to 7 percent oxygen (dry basis), 3-run average (minimum run duration is 1 hour).

VIII. Dioxins/furans: 60 nanograms/dry standard cubic meter (total mass), corrected to 7 percent oxygen, where an electrostatic precipitator-based emission control system is employed; or 30 nanograms/dry standard cubic meter (total mass) corrected to 7 percent oxygen, where an electrostatic precipitator-based emission control system is not employed, 3-run average (minimum run duration is 4 hours).

72:2 Effective Date. This act shall take effect January 1, 2006.

(Approved: May 31, 2005)

(Effective Date: January 1, 2006)
