Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Environmental Protection Act. Provides that the disposal by incineration of any perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substance, including, but not limited to, aqueous film forming foam, is prohibited. Provides the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency with rulemaking authority. Provides that if a rule or regulation is published by the USEPA regarding all or part of the subjects of these provisions, the rule or regulation shall be controlling over these provisions. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the introduced bill with the following change. Provides that nothing in the amendatory provisions applies to (i) the combustion of landfill gas from the decomposition of waste that may contain PFAS at a permitted sanitary landfill or (ii) the combustion of landfill gas in a landfill gas recovery facility that is located at a sanitary landfill (rather than providing that, if a rule or regulation is published by the USEPA in the Federal Register regarding all or part of the subjects of the amendatory provisions, one year after its publication the rule or regulation shall be controlling over the provisions of the amendatory provisions and any part of the amendatory provisions conflicting therewith shall be inoperative). Makes other changes.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the engrossed bill with the following changes. Replaces the term "perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances" with "Toxic Release Inventory Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances". Provides that "incineration" does not include thermal oxidizers when they are operated as a pollution control or resource recovery device at a facility that is using perfluoroalkyl or polyfluoroalkyl substances or chemicals containing perfluoroalkyl or polyfluoroalkyl substances (rather than using PFAS-containing chemicals). Makes other changes.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Further amends the Environmental Protection Act. Specifies that the prohibition on the disposal of TRI-PFAS by incineration does not apply to the incineration of waste at a permitted hospital, medical, and infectious waste incinerator that meets the requirements of specified federal provisions or the Board-adopted State Plan requirements for hospital, medical, and infectious waste incinerators, as applicable, or to the incineration of sludges, biosolids, or other solids or by-products generated at or by a municipal wastewater treatment plant or facility. Makes other technical changes.
