The report to Congress is in response to Section 102 of the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) of 1984. Section 102 of HSWA requires that the EPA provide a report to Congress describing: (1) the current data and information available on emissions of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins from resource recovery facilities burning municipal solid waste; (2) any significant risks to human health posed by these emissions; and (3) operating practices appropriate for controlling these emissions. EPA expanded the scope of the report to cover additional pollutants emitted from municipal waste combustors and all available pollution control techniques. The report provides an overview of the entire municipal waste combustion study. The report discusses the numbers and types of existing and projected facilities; estimates of emissions; options for controlling emissions; risks from emissions and potential for control; costs; and sampling, analysis, and monitoring of emissions.
