   111   and  this   section  for   each  category   of  solid  waste

   limitations and  other requirements  applicable to  new units  and

   guidelines  (under section  111(d)  and  this section)  and  other

   requirements applicable to existing units.

      "(B) Standards under section 111 and this section applicable to

   solid  waste incineration  units with  capacity  greater than  250

   tons per day combusting  municipal waste shall be  promulgated not

   later  than 12 months after the date of enactment of the Clean Air

   Act Amendments of  1990.  Nothing in this subparagraph shall alter

   any schedule for the promulgation of standards applicable to  such

   units under  section 111  pursuant to  any settlement  and consent

   decree entered by the Administrator  before the date of  enactment

   of the  Clean Air  Act Amendments  of 1990:  Provided, That,  such

   requirements of this section.

      "(C) Standards under section 111 and this section applicable to

   solid  waste incineration  units with  capacity equal  to or  less

   than  250  tons  per  day  combusting municipal  waste  and  units

   combusting  hospital waste,  medical  waste and  infectious  waste

   shall be promulgated  not later than  24 months after the  date of

   enactment of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.

   solid waste incineration units.

      "(2)  Emissions standard.-Standards  applicable to  solid waste

   incineration units promulgated under section 111  and this section

   shall reflect the  maximum degree of reduction in emissions of air

   pollutants  listed under  section (a)(4)  that  the Administrator,

   taking  into consideration  the cost  of  achieving such  emission

   reduction,  and  any  non-air  quality  health  and  environmental

   impacts and energy requirements, determines is  achievable for new

   or  existing  units  in  each category.    The  Administrator  may

   distinguish    among   classes,    types   (including   mass-burn,

   refuse-derived fuel, modular  and other types of units), and sizes

   of units  within a category in  establishing such  standards.  The

   degree of  reduction in  emissions that is  deemed achievable  for

   new  units in  a category  shall not  be less  stringent  than the

   emissions  control  that  is  achieved  in  practice  by the  best
