NYS DEC proposes to repeal Existing 6 NYCRR Part 225-2 Fuel Composition and Use - Waste Fuel (Existing Subpart 225-2) and replace it with Proposed 6 NYCRR Subpart 225-2, Fuel Composition and Use - Waste Oils (Proposed Subpart 225-2).

NYS DEC is adding the definition for "residual oil" to 6 NYCRR Part 200 (Part 200).

Proposed Subpart 225-2 will be included as a component of the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for New York State (NYS), as required by the Clean Air Act.
