ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to the proposal of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reclassify tire-derived fuel and other non-hazardous fuels as solid wastes. It has been stated that environmentalists are pleased by this proposal, but representatives from the tire and cement industries and state solid waste management are against the plan as it means that any unit that burns them would have to be classified as solid waste incinerators under the Clean Air Act.
