Industrial facilities that generate air pollutant emissions are likely subject to air quality regulations. Facilities must obtain air permits to construct and operate facilities to ensure compliance with these regulations. For 20 years, EPS has helped our clients obtain air quality permits for new facilities, expansions and operational changes. Most permitting requirements are not consistent from state to state. EPS has experience addressing the nuances of state and local air permitting agencies throughout the country. The types of permit applications EPS prepares include:
- New Source Review (NSR) and Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permits, including Best Available Control Technology (BACT), Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER), Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) analyses, NAAQS and PSD increment modeling, visibility analysis, toxic impacts assessment, and other impacts assessment;
- Case-by-Case Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) – Clean Air Act Section 112(g) – permits for industries in which a NESHAP has not be promulgated;
- Synthetic Minor permits, strategically implemented limitations to allow for operational flexibility while avoiding the more time-consuming and expensive NSR/PSD permitting process;
- Minor permits and amendments,
- Permits by rule,
- No-permit-required documentation for small, exempt projects.
- Title V Part 70,
- Synthetic Minor/Conditional Major,
- True minor.
