285.63(7)(b)6. 6. The applicant agrees to forfeit any unused growth accommodation credits that the department determines the applicant does not need, as provided under sub. (8).
285.63(7)(b)7. 7. The applicant agrees not to sell or transfer any amount of the growth accommodation credit to any person other than the department.
285.63(7)(b)8. 8. If the growth accommodation reported for the current year under s. 285.39 (2) (b) 1., after reduction by the amount of the proposed growth accommodation credit and any growth accommodation credits issued since the date of the report, would be 2,500 tons or less, the department may certify to the applicant a growth accommodation credit in the amount determined under this section if, because of facility shutdowns or replenishment activities under s. 285.39 that have occurred, the growth accommodation for the next succeeding year after reduction by the amount of the growth accommodation credit will be greater than 2,500 tons.
285.63(7)(b)9. 9. An applicant shall inform the department of the date or dates when it will need to use any given amount of the growth accommodation credit. The department shall certify to the applicant the proper amount of the growth accommodation credit on the date which the applicant states it will need it and shall reserve the proper amount of the growth accommodation credit for certification to the applicant upon the date needed, except for any amount which is forfeited under sub. (8). The department may use reserved growth accommodation credits to certify temporary growth accommodation credits which expire on or before the date when they are certified to the source which reserved them.
285.63(7)(b)10. 10. Upon request by an applicant, the department may certify to the applicant a growth accommodation credit which expires upon a date designated in the permit. The applicant shall sign a statement to acknowledge the expiration date of the permit. Growth accommodation credits issued under this subdivision may be certified from growth accommodation credits reserved by another source under subd. 9.
285.63(7)(c) (c) Nothing in this subsection grants the recipient of a growth accommodation credit a property right to emit volatile organic compounds.
285.63(7)(d) (d) Notwithstanding pars. (a) and (b) (intro.), the department may not grant use of the growth accommodation under this subsection for an air pollution control permit application submitted after July 1, 1992, as long as the growth accommodation area is designated under 42 USC 7407 as an ozone nonattainment area.
285.63(8) (8) Forfeiture of growth accommodation credits. Within 4 years after the department certifies, under sub. (7), a growth accommodation credit to an applicant or reserves for the future use of an applicant a growth accommodation credit, and at least every 4 years thereafter, the department shall determine whether the certified or reserved growth accommodation credit is reasonably necessary for the applicant's current use and future plans. If the department determines that any amount of the certified or reserved growth accommodation credit is not reasonably necessary for the applicant's current use and if the applicant cannot demonstrate to the satisfaction of the department that any amount of the certified or reserved growth accommodation credit is reasonably necessary for the applicant's future plans, the applicant shall forfeit an amount of the growth accommodation credit, as determined by the department. The department shall deposit the forfeited amount of the growth accommodation credit in the growth accommodation replenishment.
285.63(9) (9) Restriction on emission reduction option programs.
285.63(9)(a)(a) No emissions of volatile organic compounds may be used in an emission reduction option program if:

285.63(10)(c) (c) The department shall consider all of the following in evaluating the need for the proposed medical waste incinerator:
285.63(10)(c)1. 1. An approximate service area for the proposed medical waste incinerator that encompasses all sources of waste that could potentially be burned in the medical waste incinerator. The department shall delineate the service area based on the economics of waste collection, transportation and treatment.

285.63(10)(c)4. 4. The quantity of waste having the potential to be burned in the medical waste incinerator that may be managed in an effective recycling program created under s. 287.11.
285.63(10)(c)5. 5. The potential for reducing the quantity of waste having the potential to be burned in the medical waste incinerator by reducing the amount of waste that is generated within the anticipated service area and the potential for using alternative technologies for disposing of the waste.
285.63(10)(d) (d) The department may not determine that the site of a proposed medical waste incinerator is appropriate if the medical waste incinerator or the transportation of solid waste to the medical waste incinerator will have an adverse effect that is both substantial and unreasonable on any of the following:
285.63(10)(d)1. 1. Existing recreational land uses.
285.63(10)(d)2. 2. Land or surface water that has any of the characteristics under s. 23.27 (2).
