An HMIWI, when combusting waste, creates bottom ash in its primary chamber.(302) In batch and intermittent HMIWIs, this bottom ash is removed periodically, and in continuous HMIWIs, it is removed continuously.(303) Ash is also captured from the exhaust gas stream by fabric filters, and this fly ash also must be removed periodically.(304) Fugitive emissions can be created when removing ash as part of the removal and disposal process.(305) After the date on which the initial performance test is completed or is required to be completed, no HMIWI is allowed to discharge from an ash conveying system visible emissions of combustion ash into the atmosphere in excess of five percent of the observation period.
