Adopted Subpart 225-2, Fuel Composition and Use - Waste Oil as a Fuel

The Department has repealed 6 NYCRR Part 225-2 Fuel Composition and Use - Waste Fuel and replaced with 6 NYCRR Subpart 225-2, Fuel Composition and Use - Waste Oil as a Fuel. Adopted Subpart 225-2 regulates the burning of waste oils in combustion, incineration, and process sources throughout New York State (NYS). Adopted Subpart 225-2 establishes applicability criteria, composition limits, and permitting requirements for waste oils; establishes monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements for facilities that are determined eligible to burn waste oil; and allows for the burning of waste oils in space heaters at automotive maintenance service facilities and marine service facilities. Also, as part of this rulemaking, the Department added the definition for "residual oil" to 6 NYCRR Part 200.

Adopted 225-2 will be submitted to EPA as a revision to the State Implementation Plan for NYS.
