Outcome

CVSC opposed this bill and it did not pass.

This bill sought to exempt pyrolysis facilities from existing Solid Waste Management laws.

Pyrolysis is the melting and gasification of plastics into other petroleum products, like jet fuel. While this process is already permitted in South Carolina under existing law, the bill sought to exempt these facilities from Solid Waste oversight.

This version of pyrolysis legislation never advanced.
