This article states regulations for the disposal of hazardous waste. It also provides information about permit requirements for the transport, treatment and storage of such waste. It also mentions the availability of tax credits for waste facilities.

Energy recovery from the destruction of a hazardous waste may be considered as recycling, and the equipment or devices needed to effectuate such recovery may be eligible under this rule. In order to claim energy recovery, the unit must maintain a thermal energy recovery efficiency of at least sixty percent, calculated in terms of the recovered energy compared with the thermal value of the fuel, and at least seventy-five percent of this recovered energy must be exported and utilized on an annual basis. Credit will not be allowed for internal use of recovered heat in the same unit.
