APPROVAL AND REGISTRATION PROCEDURES FOR
INCINERATORS:
Before an incinerator may be constructed and operated in the State of Alabama, it must
first be approved by this Department. A unit can be approved by one of the following
methods:
1. The incinerator model can be on the Department’s approved list (attached). By being
on this list, it has been proven that a particular model can comply with the applicable
regulations while burning a specific type of waste.
2. If the unit is not on the Department’s approved list, the manufacturer may provide the
Department with previously conducted Method 5 and 9 test results that indicate that
the unit is capable of complying with applicable regulations while burning a specific
type of waste. That unit can then be placed on the approved list and, therefore, can be
approved for installation.
3. If no Method 5 and 9 have been performed on a specific model, the unit can be
conditionally approved to be installed and operated with the understanding that
Method 5 and 9 tests will be conducted at the expense of either the manufacturer or
the facility installing the unit. If the results submitted are acceptable (indicating
compliance), the unit’s construction and operation will be approved and that model
will be placed on the Department’s approved list.
If the test does not prove
compliance, the unit must either be modified in some way in order to comply with
the emission limit and retested or it must not be operated.
Attached is the necessary registration form for incinerators required by this Department.
This form must be completed and submitted for approval to construct and operate an
incinerator.
