Question regarding air permits for incinerators: In South Carolina we are being told by DHEC and USEPA that we will need to add emission & temperature monitoring as well as applying for a Air Permit. Do you know of an exemption?

Using a Medical Waste Incinerator
Anytime a customer is planning on using one of our incinerators, we do urge them to check with their local areas and authorities with regards to permits and regulations. Due to the fact that all areas and governments have different requirements, it is always best to check with your specific county, state or local officials on requirements for drug, medical waste, trash or solid waste disposal.
However, all of our incinerators are designed for ease of use and do not require special training in order to operate the unit. For more information and specifications on these units, please feel free to check out our Small Scale Incinerators page. Units are designed to run on diesel or #2 fuel oil and electricity.
