National Association of Clean Water Agencies v. EPA   (D.C. Circuit)

Challenging EPA's Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials Rule

The NAM and other industry organizations filed a petition with a federal appeals court to review a final rule on non-hazardous secondary materials (NHSM) issued by the EPA on February 7, 2013, entitled “Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration Units: Reconsideration and Final Amendments; Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials That Are Solid Waste, Final Rule”. The rule was written to identify whether NHSMs are solid waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act when used as fuels or ingredients in combustion units. Further details about the legal claims in this litigation will be filed with the court shortly.

This case was consolidated on June 7, 2013. For more information click here.
