2.5 AIR EMISSION CONSIDERATIONS.  The applicable local, state, and federal
air emission regulations must be met.  However, since air emission
regulations vary from state to state, and from district to district within
a state, evaluate air emission restriction levels on a case by case basis;
be aware that an air pollution control district may require waste oil
analyses, source emission tests, permit modifications, and possibly even
require health risk assessments. Modifying the existing operating permit
may simply require notifying the district of a fuel change, yet it may
require installation of additional air pollution control equipment, or
operation improvements to meet New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), or
Best Available Control Technology (BACT). Air emissions are directly
affected by the type and composition of the fuel being burned, the method
of burning, and the combustion efficiency of the energy recovery unit.  Air
pollutants of major concern from burning waste oils are particulates, lead,
