Adopted Part 219, Incinerators, and Part 200, General Provisions

The Department is adopting several changes to its operating requirements for human and animal crematories found at 6 NYCRR Subpart 219-4. The Department is adopting a new Subpart 219-4 to better reflect the current state of cremation technology and reduce emissions of particulate matter from new crematories constructed in the state. The new Subpart 219-4 contains a more restrictive particulate matter emissions limitation for new crematories and updated monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements. In addition, the Department is sunsetting Subparts 219-5 and 219-6 by requiring that existing units currently subject to these Subparts be regulated by the new Subpart 219-4.

The Department is also adopting a new Subpart 219-10 to limit oxides of nitrogen emissions from municipal waste combustion units. Finally, the Department is adopting several minor changes to Subpart 219-1 and conforming changes to Section 200.9 to clarify various terms used throughout Part 219.

Following adoption, Part 219 will be submitted to EPA as a revision to the State Implementation Plan for New York State.
