THE NYSDEC PROPOSES INCREASED REGULATION FOR BURNING WASTE OILS IN NEW YORK STATE

Proposed Subpart 225-2, Fuel Composition and Use – Waste Oils

The Department is proposing to repeal 6 NYCRR Part 225-2 Fuel Composition and Use – Waste Fuel and replace it with 6 NYCRR Subpart 225-2, Fuel Composition and Use – Waste Oils. The proposed revisions to Subpart 225-2 will regulate the burning of waste oils in combustion, incineration, and process sources throughout New York State.

The proposed Subpart 225-2 will establish applicability criteria, composition limits, and permitting requirements for waste oils; establish monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements for facilities that are determined eligible to burn waste oil; and allows for the burning of waste oils in space heaters at automotive maintenance/service facilities. Also, as part of this rulemaking, the Department is will add the definition for “residual oil” to 6 NYCRR Part 200 (Part 200). In addition, Part 200, which contains definitions related to air regulations, will also be updated.

Following adoption, Subpart 225-2 will be submitted to EPA as a revision to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for New York State.
