A combustion plant is a device in which fuels are burned to make use of the heat generated. This includes boilers, turbines, and engines. The term medium is a reference to the size of the combustion plant.
The EPA is responsible for the administration of the Fuel Register and issues a unique registration number to each registered operator. Coal bagging or bailing operators must register with the EPA annually by September 01.
