Provides that the portion of a site or facility that receives, separates, stores, and converts post-use polymers into crude oil, fuels, or other raw materials or intermediate or final products or feedstocks using a pyrolysis or gasification process and is regulated under the State's air, water, and waste regulations applicable to manufacturing facilities is not a pollution control facility under the Act. Provides that the definition of "waste" does not include post-use polymers or nonrecycled feedstocks processed through pyrolysis or gasification.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides that "gasification" means a process through which nonrecycled feedstocks are heated and converted into a fuel-gas mixture in an oxygen-deficient atmosphere and the mixture is converted into fuels (rather than fuel), including ethanol and transportation fuels (rather than fuel), chemicals, or other chemical feedstocks. Provides that "gasification" is not waste incineration or waste treatment. Provides that "gasification facility" means a manufacturing facility (rather than a facility) that receives, separates, stores and converts post-use polymers and nonrecycled feedstocks using (rather than post-use polymers using) gasification. Provides that a "gasification facility" is not a pollution control facility, a solid waste treatment facility, or a solid waste incineration facility. Removes language providing that a gasification facility shall not be considered a solid waste facility. Provides that the portion of a site or facility that receives, separates, stores, and converts post-use polymers and nonrecycled feedstocks into (rather than post-use polymers into) crude oil, fuels, or other raw materials or intermediate or final products or feedstocks using a pyrolysis or gasification process and is regulated under the State's air, water, and waste regulations applicable to manufacturing facilities is not a pollution control facility under the Act. In the definition for "municipal waste incineration" in provisions concerning municipal waste incineration emission standards, provides that "municipal waste" or "municipal waste or fuel derived therefrom" do not include non-hazardous secondary material that is excluded from solid waste when used legitimately as a fuel or ingredient in a combustion unit in accordance with the standards and criteria set forth in specified federal regulations. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 2

415 ILCS 5/3.330
415 ILCS 5/22.16b

Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill as amended by House Amendment No. 1 with the following changes: Adds provisions concerning the receipt of materials that have been source separated off-site at least once to the definitions of "gasification facility", "pyrolysis facility", and "waste". Provides that "nonrecycled feedstocks" means materials, including, but not limited to, municipal solid waste that contains post-use polymers and other post-industrial waste containing post-use polymers that has been processed into a fuel or feedstock for which (rather than non-waste materials as determined by) the United States Environmental Protection Agency has made a non-waste determination under specified federal regulations or otherwise determined are not wastes or for which the Pollution Control Board has made a non-waste determination. Provides that "post-use polymers" means plastic polymers that: (1) derive from any household, industrial, community, commercial, or other sources of operations or activities that might otherwise become a waste if not recycled or converted to manufacture crude oil, fuels, or other raw materials or intermediate or final products using pyrolysis or gasification; and (2) are not mixed with solid waste, infectious waste, hazardous waste, e-waste, tires, or construction demolition debris. Removes changes to the definition of "pollution control facility" and provisions concerning a fee assessed on an owner or operator of each new municipal waste incinerator from the bill.
