Regulatory relief for episodic generators

Some generators are VSQGs or SQGs—except when a planned or unplanned event occurs that pushes them into a higher generator category. This is known as “episodic generation.” One portion of the 2016 generator improvements rule provides regulatory relief for episodic generators. These new provisions allow VSQGs and SQGs to maintain their lower generator category during an episodic event if certain conditions are met.   READ MORE  




Refresh RCRA and your palate

We’ll be in Boston, Massachusetts, July 31-August 1, 2018, for our next Refresher. Designed with seasoned pros in mind, this seminar includes almost all of the content from our 5-Day course—distilled into two fast-paced days.

Our host hotel is the Royal Sonesta Boston located on the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge. Home to a curated art collection and lovely views of the city, you won’t want to go outside. But if you venture out, head to The Bell in Hand for chowder with a side of history—it’s the oldest continually operating tavern in America. Or, rent a bike from the hotel and cruise around town. We’ll see you there.

e-Manifest is live—no going back

As of June 30, 2018, the e-manifest system is live in all states, and although EPA didn’t burn the paper manifests, there’s no going back. Whether you will be fully utilizing e-manifest or are still working with paper manifests, this system impacts your operations. The agency has provided a great deal of information in the last year to prepare the regulated community, and we have summarized that information.   READ MORE

State of the DSW rules

Over the past decade, EPA has reworked the definition of solid waste (DSW) rules to promote recycling. This has resulted in several iterations and court challenges, culminating in the recent court-mandated vacaturs, So, what is the current state of the DSW rules in the federal regulations? Check out our recently updated white paper to find out.






Renewable hydrogen from [almost] any liquid?

The Army Research Laboratory is developing a new aluminum-based nanopowder that can be used to harvest hydrogen out of any water-based liquid. Hydrogen from water, coffee, energy drinks, you name it—can be extracted and used as fuel. Learn more about this exciting new research. It’s so promising, the Army is looking for a licensee for its commercial development.


Is it a salad? Or is it a light?

MIT engineers have successfully embedded firefly enzyme into plant material making watercress plants into functional lights. They’ve also tested this process on ingredients known more for everyday salad greens. In the future, this could mean houseplants and even street trees could become low-intensity self-powered lights. Find out how.


Seattle and Team Boeing

Last month we held our Seattle 5-Day seminar, where we were in the company of amazing environmental pros. We focused on RCRA for a week (yes, we are RCRA nerds) and enjoyed the networking in the Emerald City. McCoy customers are top flight, and speaking of flight, we had a full crew of Boeing folks. Thank you to Team Boeing and to everyone who attended 2018 Seattle.
