The o xygen necessary for incineration is supplied via ambient sewage sludge in coal-fired power plants) and industrial boilers is the substitution of.

New Rule Proposed for Emissions from Sewage Sludge Incinerators. October 27th, The EPA has proposed new rules directed at emissions from sewage sludge incinerator (SSI) units. SSI units are typically found at wastewater treatment facilities and, according to the EPA, are the sixth-largest source of mercury air emissions in the US.
