Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Federal rules governing the combustion of hazardous waste in boilers and industrial furnaces have been promulgated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and the Clean Air Act. Applicable boilers and industrial furnaces must comply with the RCRA standards and the source-specific NESHAP, also known as the maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standard, for hazardous waste combustors. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has granted New Hampshire RCRA authorization and delegated authority to establish standards to regulate MACT sources. For further information, see the national section BOILERS AND INDUSTRIAL FURNACES.

Administration and enforcement. DES's Air Resources and Waste Management Divisions administer and enforce the boiler and industrial furnace requirements in New Hampshire.
