The Background Information Document was developed to support EPA's proposal for New Source Performance Standards and Emission Guidelines under Section III of the Clean Air Act for air emissions from municipal solid waste landfills (MSW landfills). The standards and guidelines will apply to MSW landfills sized greater than 100,000 Mg of refuse in place and emit 150 Mg/yr or more annually of non-methane organic compounds (NMOC's). The document provides information for Best Demonstrated Technology recommended for the proposal as well as emission guidelines for implementation of the regulation.
