Veolia Sauget Air Pollution Control Title V Permit 2019

On June 17, 2019 the U.S. EPA issued a final revised Clean Air Act Title V permit for Veolia’s hazardous waste incinerator in Sauget, Ill. The final permit is identical to the draft permit that was released for public comment in July 2018.

The permit requires Veolia to install and operate mercury emissions controls on two incinerators that previously did not have mercury controls. The permit continues to include significant improvements to Veolia’s feedstream analysis procedures and is consistent with the March 2018 settlement agreement between EPA and Veolia.

The final permit and EPA’s responses to comments received during the public comment period are found below.  These documents are also available at; Docket ID No. EPA-R05-OAR-2014-0280.
