Q-2, r. 19 - Regulation respecting the landfilling and incineration of residual materials

Full text
130. Subject to section 133, the incineration facilities governed by this Chapter must not emit combustion gases into the atmosphere that contain
(1)  more than 20 mg/m3 of particles if the facilities have a rated capacity equal to or greater than 1 ton per hour, or more than 50 mg/m3 of particles if the rated capacity is lower. “Particle” means any substance, except chemically uncombined water, which exists in a finely divided liquid or solid state in suspension in a gaseous environment;
(2)  more than 50 mg/m3 of hydrogen chloride. That limit value may be exceeded without, however, exceeding 100 mg/m3, in the case of a facility that has a rated capacity of less than 1 ton per hour;
(3)  more than 57 mg/m3 of carbon monoxide calculated as the arithmetic average of all measurements taken during a 4-hour period;
(4)  more than 0.08 ng/m3 of polychlorinated dibenzofurans and polychlorinated dibenzo [b, e] [1,4] dioxins. That contaminant concentration is calculated by adding the concentrations of each of the congeners listed in Schedule II and multiplying the sum obtained by the corresponding toxicity equivalency factor determined in that Schedule; or
(5)  more than 20 µg/m3 of mercury or, if the facility incinerates only sludge referred to in paragraph 2 of section 121, more than 70 µg/m3 of mercury.
